Wyong Family History Group was formed in 1983 at a meeting that was held in the rooms of Wyong Shire Library on the 3rd June 1983 with 32 in attendance. A committee was formed, and monthly meetings began. This continued for the next year, then they were held in member’s homes until a room became available at Wyong Public School, Rankin Court.
In 1986 we joined with Central Coast Family History Society to co-host a State Family History Conference at Old Sydney Town. It proved to be a big task but was a success. In 1992 we had outgrown the room in the old school, so we moved to Alison Homestead where we shared space with Wyong Museum & Historical Society. In 1997 we became incorporated, by then we had a respectable bank balance and owned a great deal of equipment and resources.
By 2000 we again needed a new home, so in 2001 we took a small room at the Oasis Youth Centre in Hely Street, Wyong. We had two cupboards to hold our resources and one computer.
Our next move was in April 2003 into shop 36 Wyong Plaza Shopping Centre where we shared space with the Wyong Chamber of Commerce. When the centre was closed for renovations, Wyong Shire Council came to our rescue and we were offered the use of two rooms in the new Wyong Community Cultural Centre, 6 Ranken Court, Wyong. By January 2006 we finally had the room to set up our equipment and hold our meetings in the same location and could display our small library collection.
Now in 2019 we lease the whole building, continue to maintain a steady membership, run Special Interest Groups on different topics. We have Beginner’s Courses and Information Sessions. Our online subscription list has grown to include Ancestry.com, Deceased Online, Biographical Database, Roots Ireland. We have guest speakers who are notable experts in the field, at our General Meetings also our library has grown to include the most up to date publications as well as over 500 resource CD’s
