Welcome to the web page of our society. We hope you enjoy your visit and find information on the Gympie area and the people who once lived in the district. 

Gympie Family History Society Inc. was founded in 1980 and has grown from a small group of members helping each other carry out research to a well equipped Society with our own rooms and a large library reference and research facility.  The Society enjoys a good working relationship with the Gympie Library's Historical section and is supported by the Gympie Regional Council.


Our Society is at a well known landmark (Old Railway Station) easy to find with convenient car park and shops for lunch. Inside our rooms are spacious with a tea room, quiet areas as well as separate photocopying room & office.

The Society maintains links with other genealogical and family history groups and reciprocal rights are enjoyed with a number of them, which members can visit and where they can conduct research.  Some restrictions may apply.

Projects that our Society undertakes involves our members carrying out research for the purpose of collating and collecting local knowledge for maintaining our history.  This information  is then produced in book form and sold.  Funds from the sales of these books are used to provide additional research materials for our library.

We also have provided a list of research materials in our area. There are three locations in the Gympie area to conduct research.  Our Society at the Old Railway Ticket Office.  The Gympie Regional Library & The Latter Day Saints on the south-side of Gympie (see Other Centres.)  We have an extensive list of Books, Fiche, Films, Compact Disc at the Gympie Family History Society  to assist you to find that elusive relative.  Our Researchers and on duty members have many years of experience to start you on the right track.  To get started is relatively inexpensive, and you can be sure that the fee you pay to join our society, goes back into purchasing more research material and running costs only.
