Robert ‘Bomber’ Perrier has done plenty of research into his own family history and much of it was done at the State Library for free.

Family history is a topic so many of us are interested in, but it can also be costly with most websites charging steep fees to use the service. That’s why State Libraries are such a great resource!

Each one around the country has a stack of information, both hard copy and online, that you can use for free. Plus, librarians are trained to help you dig as deep into your family past as you want, meaning you can discover all kinds of things without paying a cent.

Have you researched your family history? What did you discover?
