Heritage Centre - Members only

The Heritage Centre has now reopened for members only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings from 9.30 am to 1 pm with the recommended Queensland Government health requirements in place.

Initially we are restricting entry to “members only” (no visitors). To comply with the 1.5m safe distance rules, we regret we cannot allow a duty volunteer to sit next to a member who may require computer assistance. Only ten are permitted in the building at any one time.

An update to the free Getting the most out of Trove for Genealogy is now available from Genealogy Boomerangs.

Trove update

Ten videos ranging from 1 min to 4 mins have been published by the National Library of Australia to help you with the new Trove interface. Visit the Trove YouTube channel here.

The Centenary Medal

Awarded to the Group for contributions to the preservation of local history. Celebrations at the Award ceremony

The Noosa Council assists community and not for profit groups by making funding available to assist with some of the general running costs. The benefit enables the Group to use its fundraising income to plan future projects for its members, visitors and the community. The Cooroy-Noosa Genealogical Group has been awarded a three year Community Alliance Grant for 2019 -2021.
The Group acknowledges and thanks Noosa Council for its support and its commitment to the many groups and community activities within the Council area.
