Family & History Research


We are able to help you research your family history or an event or any topic that relates to Rutherglen and the surrounding area. We have a huge amount of local information in our records. The society houses Rutherglen Rate Records and Rutherglen Sun Editions on microfilm, with Victorian Births, Deaths & Marriages records on microfiche, Carlyle & District Cemetery records and many local school records.

To help us exist as a Society and to help maintain, build upon and manage these records we have a small fee for any research carried out – $25 per initial enquiry.  The research will be carried out by our Research Officers who volunteer their time to help the organisation. They are dedicated and passionate about preserving and communicating the rich history of our local area. If you would like further information please contact us.
