Whitehorse Manningham Local History Database is a regional database containing information about the local history collections held at Box Hill Historical Society Inc., Doncaster-Templestowe Historical Society Inc., Whitehorse Historical Society Inc and Warrandyte Historical Society Inc. and the public libraries in Whitehorse and Manningham. Volunteers at the four historical societies catalogue their collections and the records are then exported into the regional local history database.

A selection of images from the collection appears in the Whitehorse Manningham Local History Database and these images can also be found in PictureVictoria – a database of images of Victoria. These images can also be accessed via Trove.
