The Hambrook Family History Society is a not-for-profit organisation whose objectives are to promote research into the history of various Hambrook families, share Hambrook family history and genealogy with all interested members of the Society, and promote Hambrook family unity by sponsoring and encouraging gatherings and reunions.

The Hambrook Herald

The Hambrook Herald was the Society's quarterly journal and was issued in March, June, September, and December to members and institutional subscribers. Publication has been suspended while efforts are made to bring the Society's information and presence online.

Quotable Genealogy Quotes

Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries;
and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
