Camden Library Service holds some information about local families in the Local Studies Collection, including pioneer registers, family histories and cemetery records.
For detailed information and assistance about specific local families, Camden Area Family History Society (CAFHS) may be able to assist. CAFHS is located adjacent to the Camden Museum, inside Camden Library and is staffed by volunteers with their own opening hours.
