Millicent Local History Collection

Overview

Over 33,000 items have been indexed and this extensive collection of local history relating to many hundreds of events, people, places and organizations from the famous to the obscure. The aim is to encourage the retention & preservation of as many documents and photographs as possible. The files cover the Millicent and Beachport council area, but do not end there.

All Council areas in the South East are represented in some way. There are 44 towns and geographical areas under which material received can be assigned and within each of these titles 65 sub-headings, depending on what the material is. The diverse range includes Agriculture Biographies, Cemeteries, Drainage General Information, Local Government, Newspaper Cuttings, Maps & Plans, Railways, Sport, Town Planning & Wrecks to name a few.

An active group of volunteers have undertaken research, scanning of records and photographs, indexing, organisation of records and added to the comprehensive data base.
