Our Research

Research is the backbone of our life as a group - it is only through research that we have discovered so much of the previously untapped or misunderstood history of Oatlands, but it can be very time consuming when there are only a small number of people undertaking it and they may be a long distance from the necessary archives.

If you would like to become involved, we'd love to hear from you. If you are inexperienced we can guide you and offer advice, along with enough archive references to get you started - even for the experienced researcher, the references can provide a much needed short cut.

If you have already started investigating the history of your house or your family in Oatlands we would very much like to add your researches to our own and we may have information that could help you - together we can help to increase the overall understanding of Oatlands.
