Kempsey Family

History Group

The Terry Eakin Collection

Terry Eakin has gifted the KFHG and the township of Kempsey his collection of research materials that he has personally collected over his lifetime of expertly researching Irish Family History.

This collection is mostly still unpacked in cartons, and takes up over 30 shelf metres when placed on sheving. The KFHG is currently negotiating for a suitable site locally for a Family History Centre for our town. When this is finalised we will be able to fully display this huge collection for the use of our members.

Lastly we plan to make this collection available to the general public for Family Research. The collection will be catelogued and can then be accessed by non-members for a fee, or our Research Section will do it for you for a seperate fee.
