The interest and joy engendered by researching the life and background of our forebears is impossible to describe. Suffice it to say that these feelings do exist, and are most pleasurable to experience.

If you are thinking of starting out on the trail of your antecedents, or if you wish to continue what you have already started, please give some consideration to joining our group. We are a non-profit organisation, dedicated to promoting interest and participation in Genealogy. Our Research Room is located inside the Tweed Heads Regional Library,at the Civic Centre, Brett Street, Tweed Heads, NSW.

We were previously known as Twin Towns Family History Group Inc.

A research service, dealing with information on Tweed, Brunswick, and southern Gold Coast, can be provided by one of our members. This is information to be found in local newspapers, from 1914 to the present. The cost of this service varies, depending upon the time frame involved. To give an idea of these costs :-

If exact date is known, $5 per lookup, plus photocopying at 20c per A4 sheet, and
$2 postage.

If date is not known, $20 per lookup, plus extras as above.

Payment of the charge is to be made in advance of receiving research material, and made payable to our Association.

Should you wish to avail yourself of this service, please contact tweedfhs@hotmail.com to make arrangements.

A get-together meeting is held at 1.30pm on the first Tuesday of the month, at the South Tweed Heads Sports Club

(formerly known as South Tweed Heads Bowling Club ). We try to have a guest speaker to address these meetings, and they

are very enjoyable occasions.
