Donated Photographic Collection

What is it?

This consists of photos which have been donated to our collection. They must be related to the Cowra area, or people of Cowra, and must be identifiable.

A search of Cowra Family History Group's database can be made and copies of images ordered by either:

(a) calling personally to the family history library during opening hours; or

(b) making an appointment to inspect the collection out of opening hours

All Donated photos can be checked in this index.

Further details available by emailing [email protected] or writing to the Cowra Family History Group Inc.

Download this order form by right-clicking and selecting "save link as" or "save target as", depending on your browser.

Note: We have had to suspend our Paypal payment system thanks to Paypal making life very difficult for Incorporated Associations in Australia. They don't seem to understand the legal workings and have just buried us in paperwork instead. As well as that their website form for accepting that paperwork is NOT working!


Cost is $10 for the first photo, $5 for each additional photo ordered at the same time, and $3 postage (inc. in first photo price on form and Paypal). Photos are supplied on CD only, so you can choose the size and method of printing for yourself.

As residents of Cowra gradually realise the historic value of their individual family photographs, many from previous generations, the question arises as to the best way to preserve them for posterity. Cowra Family History Group is gradually acquiring small collections that will one day grow into a wonderful record of families from this region. When properly archived these images will also become available for the enjoyment and information of future generations.Although in its fledgling stage, enquiries of these small collections may be made by email or by writing to Cowra Family History Group Inc.

Likewise, email or write to the group if you have photographs you would like to be included in this new collection. As well as originals, we are happy to accept good copies, either printed or in digital form.
