HOME ABOUT US EVENTS CONTACTS MEMBERSHIP GENEALOGY 

WHO WE ARE

Our interests vary greatly from genealogy, song, drama,   Cornish language and culture as well as a Cornish dance group that is currently in recess due to some recent retirements.

Our Cornish born members are always willing to help Australian Cornish descendants with place names and pronunciation and the drama group entertain and introduce the Cornish accent to the uninitiated.

LIBRARY

We have an extensive lending library which is available to members. It consists of both fiction and non fiction. With new books being purchased regularly.


AIMS

Southern Sons of Cornwall Inc. is an association of people with Cornish connections.

Membership is open to those having Cornish ancestry or with a deep interest in all things Cornish.

Our aims are:

  • To provide a friendly social framework for members to meet periodically and to enjoy the resulting fellowship;

To assist in the creation and maintenance of members� genealogical records;

To research Cornish history and to communicate such information to members via a periodical newsletter and via presentations and discussions at the regular meetings.

To keep au fait with matters relating to other Cornish associations functioning in Australia and other countries and where appropriate, communicate this information to members.

HISTORY

In November 1998, Julie Wheeler and Sonia Reuter, who were members of the Cornish Association of New South Wales (CANSW) decided that as they lived some 150kms from the CANSW meeting venues, they would establish a sister organisation to be located in the Shoalhaven region, where they both lived.

During the intervening years, they have built Southern Sons of Cornwall Inc. (SSoC) to its present position, respected Australia-wide as well as internationally, as an active and interesting Cornish Association.
