Surname Index

MGS has prepared an alphabetical surname list of family histories and biographies held in the MGS Library. These family histories have been donated to MGS by researchers and provide a valuable source of genealogical information. They have been catalogued – patrons using the MGS website can search the online KOHA catalogue at  KOHA to find out more about these family histories.  Note – This surname list is not complete and does not reflect all the information on these and other families contained within other books, online databases and other resources of the MGS Resource Centre.
