Our Digital Project

The Picton and District Historical and Family History Society holds a wide range of material relating to the history of Picton, its district and local families. Digitising this material is an enormous task and very much a work in progress as we depend on a small number of volunteers.

If you have an interest in our local history, possess basic computer skills and would like to dedicate your time to assist, (even if you live outside the Wollondilly region) please feel free to contact us.
