How to search our archive

You can personally search the archive at the court house in Lancefield, or we can search for you. To find out more, please check the headings below.

I Want To Search Myself

Visit us at the court house in Main Road, Lancefield (Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10am-2.30pm). Our volunteers will be happy to help you.
No appointment is necessary, but an email or phone call to us before your visit would be appreciated. Members can search the archive for free.
Fees apply for non-members: $25 for the first 2 hours and $10 per hour thereafter, $10 per photograph, $1 per A4 photocopy.

I Would Like You To Search For Me

Please send your request using our research form.
If it’s a family history enquiry, please include copies of information you already have. This will prevent us sending you duplicate material.
When we receive your request and research fee, we’ll send you an initial printout of all the references relating to your request.
We’ll also create an indexed family history folder relating to your request, providing a secure back-up for your material and a resource for other researchers.
Research fee: $25 for the first 2 hours, $10 per hour thereafter. Same rates apply for overseas research requests.
