The FDHS seeks to collect and conserve the local history of the Flinders District. It also makes this material accessible to current and future generations by publishing books, brochures and a regular newsletter with news and reviews from material held in the society archives. The photographs, maps and other documents provide an insight into past events and a context for current development in the Flinders district. The recording of the memories and accounts of members of our pioneering families and older people from the district is a particularly important and urgent task. The Society welcomes contributions of photos and family history documents relating to the Flinders District.
