IFHG Library Collection Items : A - W

Did you know we have nearly 3000 items in the Illawarra Family History Group Library ? Many are located in the Family Studies area of the Wollongong City Library Reference Floor.

The others have been relocated into the Old Wollongong Court House where they are available for borrowing by members for a small fee. Note as it costs $40/month in rent for our library room in the Old Court House, the small fee is to offset the rental costs.
