World War One 100th Centenary
Over the period July 2014 to late 2018 the Society, in conjunction with other local groups, is publishing short profiles each week in the North Central Review, recognising the contribution made by local men and women who volunteered for service in World War One. These profiles will also be progressively published on this web site.
Court of Petty Sessions Registers
The indexing of the Kilmore Court of Petty Sessions Registers 1888-1948 of 22 volumes was completed in 2018 and the Court Registers have been lodged with the Public Record Office of Victoria.
The sorting of our photograph collection into categories is proceeding. Following the completion of sorting the intention is to then scan and catalogue the photos onto a suitable platform.
The name indexing of newsletters issued by the Society continues. The run of issues of Kilmore Connections, which started in 1999, has been completed and prior series are being indexed.
Obituaries From Local Newspapers
Significant obituaries have been extracted from local newspapers that have been published over the past 150 years. These are being examined and sorted with the possibility of publishing in book form as they represent a reflection of the contribution of many people to the history of Kilmore and district.
An assessment of placing further plaques on buildings in Kilmore is ongoing.
