Kilmore District Local Communities

COURTHOUSE_LOGO

Kilmore Historical Society just added a new Local Communities page to our site under About Us.

The Society does not deliberately collect material in relation to the following local communities, although the Society will consider accepting donations of documents covering these communities where no historical society exists.

In addition to the items listed on the page, it is likely that there will be specific information on these communities in records that appear to be Kilmore items. For example, some localities will be referred to in local histories on Kilmore, and Wandong areas are covered for some periods in the Kilmore Shire Rate Books.

Communities listed include Beveridge, Broadford, Bylands, Clonbinane, Darraweit Guim, Donnybrook, Glenaroua, Heathcote Junction, Hidden Valley, High Camp, Kalkallo, Kilmore East, Lancefield, Mandalay, Moranding, Pyalong, Reedy Creek, Seymour, Tallarook, Tantaraboo, Tooborac, Tyaak, Upper Plenty, Wallan, Wallan East, Wandong and Willowmavin.

Hello world!

Welcome to our new website.

We hope you find it a refreshing update; easier to navigate and quickly find newly added featured content. The site now also has the ability to easily share content with your friends via the social media connectivity buttons and the capability of providing feedback and comments. We hope that you will feel free to share your own Kilmore related stories with us.

As part of our makeover we have also integrated the Kilmore Footsteps page previously hosted by one of our members on their own personal site. Researchers may submit their ancestors’ births, deaths and marriages data and contact details for connecting directly with other researchers and family connections. Kilmore Historical Society does not necessarily hold any records on these families and this page is offered purely as a service to the community. However, research inquiries to the society are most welcome as well as your stories about your Kilmore ancestors.
