The Records Museum houses over 80,000 digitised records for the region including family details, gold findings, school records, war records and much more. Each of the records is indexed for fast retrieval of information. We have photographs of over 6,000 gravestones for all of the cemeteries within the Loddon Shire. The software for the system was developed in house by our retired systems analyst/programmer. We also are currently setting up QR codes at the Wedderburn Cemetery for our towns pioneers so that visitors can watch an audio slide show about their contribution to the town. Last year we digitised over 50 reels of microfilm containing newspapers going back to the 1860s. We are currently indexing those newspapers into our digital system.

Our collection includes photos of local families, old buildings and individuals; and digital photos of cemetery headstones. We have information about the gold mines and mining history of the area; schools, churches, local families and events in the town. We sell books about Wedderburn and the surrounding districts. We have digital copies of the Korong Shire rate books. We also have digital copies of all honor boards around the area. We can also supply records on a USB memory stick which can be posted out to you for a modest fee based on the number of records supplied.
