YORKE PENINSULA FAMILY HISTORY GROUP   YPFHG

PREMISES:        Local History Room, Kadina Community Library TAFE Complex, 1A Doswell Terrace, KADINA.

INQUIRIES:

Addressed to the Secretary, YPFHG, PO Box 260, KADINA, SA, 5554 or email: kadina.library@plain.sa.gov.au

The Yorke Peninsula Family History Group meet on the 1st Thursday each month from February to November at the Kadina Town Hall, 51 Taylor Street, Kadina at 7.30pm (unless otherwise advertised). The AGM is held in August.

RESEARCH:

Income is derived from membership and research fees which are used to purchase additional records.

All members of the group are volunteers and take up various positions within the group.

The research officer spends a great deal of time viewing records, often with little or no results.  This is not the fault of the researcher, as often the information is not available.  Several visits to the library may be necessary to complete the research as far as possible.  You may be advised to contact other organisations for further research.

Enquiries will automatically be placed in the group newsletter.

Source references are shown with replies i.e. cemetery, school or passenger lists.  We cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made in official records.

It is not always possible to tell how long research will take.  The YPFHG request an 'up front fee' of $25 for the first hour of research and advised if additional fees are required for further research.  A stamped self addressed envelope must be included for your reply.

Enquiries should contain what you are specifically looking for.  A request such as "Can I have all that you have on John Citizen and his family" does not really help.
