Family History

Love to know more about your family's past?

The Gosford Family History Collection is located on the Mezzanine Level of Gosford Branch Library and is currently accessible only to library staff. Our history team are happy to facilitate access to this collection. Please email history@centralcoast.nsw.gov.au for assistance.

What does the library hold?

Ancestry.com and Find My Past are temporarily available from home for Library members. Please contact the library library@centralcoast.nsw.gov.au for log in details.

The main emphasis of our collection is on New South Wales, with some Queensland and Victorian Immigration records. Please note that we do not hold overseas records, as other groups on the Central Coast specialise in these.

A large selection of family history books and guides are available for loan or reference use within the library.

Use of the collection is conducted on a learn-it-yourself basis, however, if you require assistance starting your research, or you have hit a brick wall, please contact us on 4350 1560 or email history@centralcoast.nsw.gov.au.
