Society of Australian Genealogists

Society of Australian Genealogists August birthday activities:
August is our Birthday Month
The Society celebrates its 80th anniversary during August, and we’re marking this in a few different ways.
On the afternoon of Sunday 26 August we’re holding a birthday party for the Society at Richmond Villa – click here to register your interest in attending. We’re hoping as many members as possible can be accommodated so please register by 10 August – if you’ve already done so we’ll be in contact shortly. The cost is $30 per head.

August is also ‘‘Bring a Friend’ month in the library a 379 Kent Street. Members can bring along a relative, friend, neighbour, work colleague (or whoever) with them into the library for the day and they won’t have to pay the $20 day fee – this is a great opportunity to introduce others to the Society’s collections and to family history. No bookings are necessary, and if they decide to join on the day we’ll waive the $20 joining fee too!

And on Wednesday 29 August (our official birthday) we’ll be open free of charge to all non-members for the day.

Reaching this milestone is a testament to the work of all our volunteers and supporters over the past eight decades – thank you!
