Heraldry & Genealogy Library


The Heraldry & Genealogy Society of Canberra Inc. was established

in 1964. The Society’s library is located at The Cook Community Hub, 41 Templeton Street, Cook, ACT. The library contains a comprehensive collection of about 20,000 titles and many thousands of microforms, including all available Birth, Death and Marriage (BDM) indexes of the Australian States, a vast collection of Australian and Overseas Cemetery records, Monumental Inscriptions and Parish records.


I had the privilege of photographing the library over several months in 2018. The volunteers, members and visitors I worked with made the period most productive and enjoyable. My thanks to the Councillors and Officers of the Society who made it possible for me to include the HAGSOC Library in this project.
