A little history about our group

The initial meeting was 30th March 2002 in the Masonic Hall where 25 people attended and agreed that to start a family research group in our area was very viable. The name of the group was decided and our Logo “Spanning the Years”.

Thanks to Lodge
The Committee and Members of the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Family Research Group Inc., would like to publicly acknowledge the wonderful support which it has received from the members of of Lodge Port Stephens No.522 since we first met in the Masonic Hall in 2002.
Thanks to their generosity, we have been able to expand our resources and provide a meeting area for all those interested in researching their family histories, and also to initiate and support many local projects.
Since the disbanding of Lodge Port Stephens, Shop 3 of the Masonic Centre has been under the management of the Sydney Grand Lodge and as we are unable to meet the commercial rental as asked, we are placing many of our resources into storage until we find a new home.
