Beaudesert Genealogy

Skeletons in the cupboard?
Australian Royalty in your tree?
Let us help you find out.

Thursday is Genealogy day at Beaudesert Historical Museum.

Our team of experienced family history researchers can show you how to get started, where to go for information and provide forms to help you.

We are a friendly, helpful group formed to give assistance to members of the public who are researching their family history and need a little help. Perhaps you would like to speak to like-minded people, come and enjoy a cuppa with us.

Many of our members have been researching for over 20 years and are happy to share their knowledge. Local history is extensively covered and available for your perusal. Our library is open every Thursday between 10am and 2pm. Our meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of each month.


Membership is $15 per year for the Historical Museum which includes membership of Beaudesert Genealogy.

After joining a copy of Smoke Signal will be e-mailed to your computer. Non members who wish to do their own research may do so once their membership has been approved at the Beaudesert Historical Museum.

Do you have any photos of your ancestors? What information have you been able to find out about them?

Details of their marriage, their funerals, what ship they may have arrived on, or information that may have been published in the local newspapers. We can show you how to obtain some of this if it is available.

Thinking of having your DNA tested, or have you had it done and now not sure how to find your way through the minefield?

Several of our members have had their DNA tested, and can help you begin your search using this fascinating new genealogical tool. It is bound to throw up some surprises and to confirm or disprove some long held family myths.
