NEW IN THE MUSEUM IN 2023
Family historians can now easily search for records of their Renwick ancestors using the Museum’s new Family History Index.
The Index shows which records the Museum holds for 773 families who have lived in or around Renwick. It covers the period 1850 to 2023.
In the Museum’s Research Room there are cemetery records, family trees, birth, death and marriage notices, obituaries, biographies of fallen soldiers, lodge membership records, and hundreds of photos.
The Work Room is the place to find family stories on posters on the walls, published family history books, and a survey of Renwick houses and their builders, owners, and occupants.
The walls in the Watson Memorial Library are hung with large portraits of early settlers.
Many families such as the early BRYDON, FRASER, GIBSON, HAINES, MILLS, NEWMAN, TAPP and WATSON families have multiple entries in the Index.
Others have only one mention, but that one record may be the missing
piece in your family research.
To find out if there are records of your family, and to see the records, come to the Museum between 10am and 2pm any Monday (except public holidays)
or, email us and we will check the Index for you.
