On World Genealogy Day

Heritage Centre at 17 Emerald St, Cooroy, Queensland
How appropriate on World Genealogy Day that this afternoon at Cooroy, the local Historical and Genealogical Society was presented with the Centenary Medal from the Royal Historical Society of Queensland.

This medal recognises
Service to the Discipline of History in its many Forms with particular reference to the Research, Preservation and Promotion of the History of Queensland
The group which commenced operations in 1996, has worked tirelessly and successfully to raise funds to build and establish a Heritage Centre. The new building was completed in December 2016 and now houses the Group's comprehensve library and well equipped research centre.

Congratulations to the hardworking members of the committees throughout the years and the members who contributed to the success and realisation of this venture. Through their efforts and the ongoing efforts of the members of the group, the local history of the region is being preserved.

Please visit our website to learn more about the group and the local history resources available.
