The Ipswich Historical Society recently launched their new website. The new site provides details on all their upcoming events and projects.

The Ipswich Historical Society was founded in October 1966 as a result of a need in the community for the collection and preservation of the history of the Ipswich region.

In July 1967, the Society began its search for suitable premises for meetings and to establish an Historical Museum.

The Society commenced collections of items of interest in February, 1969.

On the second of March 1982, the Society launched the book “Romance on the Bremer” and it was reprinted in 1992.

The Society members have actively participated on many occasions in the celebration of history of the region which have included the turning of the first sod re-enactment for the railways, and the Colour City Festival (now called the Ipswich Festival).

I am an ex resident of Ipswich, my grandparents were Isaac & Margaret Lonie of Booval, and Thomas & Janet Malcomson of Ebbw Vale. I am attempting to put together family trees of both sides, and would appreciate any direction possible to find information of these families. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks you

Hi I am trying to find out some information on my family history and was hoping you may help. I know that my grand parents lived in Ipswich & he worked on the railway. I don't have a lot of information to give you. His name was William James Clulow & she was Rhoda Isobel Clulow (born Sesarago) My mother Mavis never talked about her family so that is all I have. Thank you
