Port Phillip Pioneers Group Inc.
The Port Phillip Pioneers Group is a family history group formed in May 1970 as a special interest group of The Genealogical Society of Victoria (GSV).
The original purpose was to bring together members of the GSV who could establish lineal descent from Pioneers who settled or were born in the Port Phillip District of the Colony of New South Wales (the present State of Victoria) prior to 1 July 1851.
The Group became a separate Incorporated Association in April 1991 and membership of the GSV is no longer required. Linking with the GSV is maintained as a Member Group.
We are also affiliated with the Royal Historical Society of Victoria.
(1) Membership of the Port Phillip Pioneers Group is open to persons having ancestors of whom at least one settled or was born in the present State of Victoria prior to 1 July, 1851 and can provide proof of direct lineal descent from their Pioneer ancestor/s.
(2) Eligibility for Membership shall be determined by the President of the Group, on the recommendation of the Examiner of Proofs.
The Port Phillip Pioneers Group Inc. web site is a fascinating look back in time and an excellent resource for Melbourne.
