A Message from the President
Welcome to the Hunter Valley Chapter of the Fellowship of First Fleeters.
Having stopped at our web pages, you have an interest in First Fleeters or perhaps you are just curious. Welcome to you all.
We are a group of approximately 40 enthusiastic members who claim and have proven family links to a person who came to this country on one of the ships of the First Fleet in January 1788.
If you are researching your ancestors we may be able to assist you, particularly if you believe that you are a descendant of a First Fleet arrival. To qualify for full membership of the Fellowship of First Fleeters people must be able to produce proof of their lineage from a First Fleet arrival. If we can't help the good people at First Fleet House in Sydney will surely be of assistance to you.
Visitors are very welcome to attend our luncheon meetings which are held in the Senior Citizens Hall, 153 Brunker Road, Adamstown on the third Monday of each even month (February, April, June, August, October and December), commencing at 10:30am, to 12:30pm.
In addition to our regular meetings, outings to special events and sites of historic interest are also held a number of times each year.
A bi-monthly newsletter is sent to all financial members.
