The Geelong Historical Records Centre is Victoria's largest regional archive and resource centre.
The Centre was established in 1979 through a partnership between Geelong local government and the Geelong Historical Society. Operational funding is provided through municipal grants and self generated revenue and this is sufficient to employ professional staff to run the Centre. Volunteers assist the paid staff and perform much of the routine background work in archive, photograph and map cataloguing.
The Centre is an approved place of deposit for local government records in the Barwon Region and works closely with the Victorian Public Record Office in identifying and preserving these public records.
The Centre handles up to 10,000 enquiries each year, providing assistance with school projects, family histories and general historical research.
The collection is based on local archives, public, private, commercial and individual. It includes a great deal of material that is donated by members of the public, both from within Geelong and further afield.
