Local and Family History

We have a comprehensive reference collection of resources relating to all past, current and future aspects of the Bega Valley Shire and south east coastal region.  All library branches have a local history collection with the main collection held at Bega Library. While the collection is available to everyone, for preservation reasons, it is a reference only collection.

Ask our customer and information officers to direct you to the collections in each of our libraries. You can also access Ancestry Library Edition at any of our libraries.
