Looking for People and Places of Holroyd

Holroyd Local History Research aims to document by way of photos and written works, the history of the Holroyd and surrounding area by researching the everyday people, shops, schools and industry that made the area what it is today.

We are looking for photos or stories of people/families/businesses/places of interest in the Holroyd (formerly known as Prospect & Sherwood) and surrounding area of Western Sydney.
This area covers the suburbs of Merrylands, Guildford, Westmead, Wentworthville, Greystanes, Mays Hill and some parts of Prospect, Girraween, Toongabbie, Pendle Hill, Smithfield, Granville and Yennora. We also research some people and places of the Parramatta district as well.

All donations of photos or stories for copying gratefully accepted and acknowledged.

We have a great interest in both family and local history and hope that our collection will become a valuable resource tool for the general public who may be trying to trace their family history or have an interest in the history of the Holroyd area.
