Visitors are most welcome at our meetings, so come along and join us if you are interested.  There is a $4 door charge for non-members.

Meetings are held on:

  • the second Thursday of the month starting at 7.30pm (the evening meeting) and

  • the third Thursday of the month starting at 10.00am (the morning meeting).

In December we only hold an evening meeting, and in January we all take a break.

Speakers and Topics

The yearly programme of Branch meetings is varied. It includes:

  • Speakers with expertise in fields of family history and local history interest
  • Specialised Workshops
  • Sessions solving research problems

Our meetings also include notices of interesting events coming up and the opportunity for members to share particuarly interesting family history "finds" they have made over the previous month.

The doors are open from 7.00pm for the evening meeting and from 9.30am for the morning meeting so that members can share a cup of tea/coffee and talk amongst themselves before formalities commence.

Sometimes meetings are replaced with field trips to local sites of genealogical interest.
