History Collection

Mildred Tanner History Collection

Local History Area

If history is your subject you may find something of interest within the Mildred Tanner History Collection at the Victor Harbor Public Library.

Resources include biographies and family stories, genealogy, periodicals, newspapers, heritage surveys, local community newsletters, and photographs.

The Southern Argus (1853 -1913) and The Times (from its inception in 1912 until 1992) are accessible on the Library computers.

Histories of the local area and a number of other centres throughout South Australia can be found on our shelves.

People with an interest in genealogy will find South Australian births, deaths, and marriages on the Digger Database, Ancestry.com and the Biographical Index of South Australians 1836-1885.

If you are seeking help with your family history reference work, you may wish to book a help session with the Encounter Bay Family History Group. The group meets each Monday between 1 and 3 pm in the Technology Room at the Library. Please contact the Library for bookings. You can browse the group's webpage at http://encounterbayfhg.org.au/
