The first committee consisted of Bronwyn Sims, Margaret Patternson, Judy Reynolds, Julie Clifford, Barbara Wilkes, Shirley Schulz, Helen Trustum, Joyce Smith and Nerilyn Cowen. At their first meeting there was over 40 people in attendance. After 4 months there were 56 members and over 30 people attending the meetings. The group had listed for their resources 20 books, 5 microfiche groups and several newspapers.

The “Crossing Place” magazine got its name, where Clay and Stapleton set up their camp. It became the crossing place for settlers, mail deliveries and travellers to cross the river.

September 24th 1987 saw the groups first major project get off the ground. This was to transcribe the West St Cemetery.
