The Melton Family History Group will be holding a special event ahead of Anzac Day.

The group meets at the Melton library every Wednesday to help locals discover their family history.

The group will hold a morning tea on April 24 to enjoy while looking up the past or memories that residents may not know about.

The group was formed in 1994 and since then have been helping locals find out about their history.

They use a combination of the internet, special programs and in some cases micro film.

Secretary Ian Bowey said there had been some really good stories they had found out during this time, including one lady who was able to find her long lost brother.

The group has also had displays at the library sharing some history.

The Melton Family History Group will be at the library between 10am-noon on April 24 for the morning tea and research. The group is always looking for new members.
