Get into family heritage: Doyle

Bryan Doyle is encouraging his constituents to learn more about their family heritage as part of National Family History Month.

“Every one of us shares a common story, one of our ancestors made the decision to come to Australia and call it home, the NSW State Records play a critical role in documenting significant moments in the lives of our people and our community,” the member for Campbelltown said.

State Records Centre at Kingswood, the State’s largest repository, holds more than 500 kilometres of paper records including maps, plans, volumes and files. This includes around 70 kilometres of historic records. State Records also has sites in Sydney and around NSW.

Events as part of National History Family History Month will be held throughout Australia. Visit www.familyhistorymonth.org.au for family history events in your local area. For more information about State Records visit www.records.nsw.gov.au or call 9673 1788.

In other news, Mr Doyle welcomed the launch of the NSW Carers Strategy, which he says is set to benefit carers across Campbelltown.

“The new Carers Strategy puts in place initiatives and programs to support carers across Campbelltown who are looking after a family member, or a friend who has a disability, mental illness, chronic health condition or are elderly,” he said.

The new strategy will include a number of ground breaking initiatives including for the first time a young carer app, which is being developed by young carers themselves which provides online, readily accessable support services and information.

The strategy mainly focuses on:

  • employment and education;
  • carer health and well-being;
  • information and community awareness;
  • carer engagement;
  • improving the evidence base.
