Did your ancestors come from the Moonta area? Researchers at the School of Mines Family History & Resource Centre in Ellen Street, Moonta can assist with family and local history. They have extensive records on early history and shipping records. Births, deaths, marriages and newspaper records are also available. They are open Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 1 pm to 4 pm. Until the end of November a special 2018 ANZAC Armistice Display is being featured. There are also displays relating to Moonta's Mining Heritage as well as a large display of medical and apothecary equipment and a wide variety of information from bygone days.
