Digital Archive

The Picton and District Historical and Family History Society digital archive holds a wide range of material relating to the history of Picton, its district and local families.

It is very much a work in progress. Our files are regularly being updated but digitising the material is an enormous task and we depend on a small number of volunteers.

While basic computing skills are helpful we can teach all you will need to know. You do not need to be a local resident. You will need a computer, an internet connection and an interest in history.

If you have an interest in our local history and would like to help please  contact us.
