On Sunday, 26th April we had an open day for WW1 Military Research in our rooms at 452 South Street, Toowoomba.
The day started at 9.0 am with a brief tutorial on using the digital resources held by the society, followed at 10 am by a demonstration focusing on digital records, tips and techniques for researching World War I military ancestors.

The Society has developed a file on military personnel who were born in Toowoomba and enlisted in WWI, as well as a file of those not born in Toowoomba, but who enlisted in Toowoomba. These files along with others relating to both world wars were available to research free of charge.

We have available at our South Street library, copies of the tutorial notes from the day.available for a fee of $3.00.
Visitors are always welcome within opening hours to research any of their Family History with the help of our Volunteer staff.
