THE REDCLIFFE & DISTRICT FAMILY HISTORY GROUP INC WEBSITE

If you are interested in learning more about your family history
the Group Research Meetings are held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 
between 9.00am and 12.00pm
From 2nd February 2021until the beginning of July 2021, we will be operating from temporary premises at The Redcliffe Junior Rugby Union Clubhouse, Ray Frawley Fields, 23 Silcock Street, Clontarf.
 
In July 2021 we will be returning to our usual premises at our usual time of 9.30am to 12.30pm
The Scout Den in Isobel Street, near the corner of Maine Road, Clontarf (adjacent to Yourell Park) 

We have volunteers to help you get started.


Please note that this Website supersedes ALL previous sites for this Group.
 

Our family history research is not limited to Redcliffe or even Queensland but reaches out to the whole world.  Australia, after all, is a country of emigrants and many of those families want to know more about where they came from. 


The Redcliffe & District Family History Group Inc (R&DFHG) is situated on the Redcliffe Peninsula, approximately 30kms north of the city of Brisbane, on Moreton Bay and has been in operation since June 1986.


The Group produces a Newsletter three times a year which is circulated to all members and affiliated Family History Groups.

At its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 8th August 2017, Leonne Willis, a 20 year member and leader of the Redcliffe & District Family History Group Inc was elected as a Life Member of the Group for her outstanding contribution to the Group.

President Cheryl Salisbury said that Leonne has made a major contribution to Group’s important work in the recording and preserving the family histories of those associated with the Peninsula and surrounding districts.

In presenting Leonne with a Life Membership Certificate President Cheryl outlined Leone’s many years of outstanding service and said that it gave her great pleasure, on behalf of the members, to recognise Leone in this way.

The President noted that Leonne had been instrumental some years ago in ensuring the Group continued its work following a period of significant loss of Membership by re-vitalising the culture, finances and membership numbers.  Leone has previously held the positions of President and before that, Secretary and continues to serve as Newsletter Editor and Sponsorship coordinator. Her contribution is widely recognised.

Leonne thanked the President and Members of the Group saying that the news that she had been made a Life Member of the Group was totally unexpected and acknowledged the contribution of other members who had helped her to reinvigorate the Group including Rhonda Simpson, Sheena Miller and Bob Kirkwood.
