Welcome to The Heraldry and Genealogy Society of Canberra. We look forward to seeing you in the Library, at a monthly meeting, at a Special Interest Group or at one of our education sessions.

 

Next Monthly Meeting – 7 July 7:30pm

 

Elizabeth Burness is a Curator and Storyteller at the Tuggeranong Schoolhouse Museum in the Canberra suburb of Chisholm.

At the July monthly meeting, Elizabeth says she “will focus on the McGee family who lived at the site from 1898 until the schoolteacher Frank McGee retired in 1927. I dress roughly in the style of that period and take an item from each room and take on the persona of Mrs McGee. As with most of my presentations I take an entertaining view of the past, although most of what I say is historically accurate”.

Please join us for an entertaining history talk on part of Canberra’s early history.

In August, the Society will join all other societies in Australia to celebrate family history month.

There’s lots of opportunities to further your research whether you’re just starting or have been researching for longer than you care to admit.

Take advantage of the education sessions on offer, come to a monthly meeting or drop into our Library and chat to our helpful volunteers. If you're stuck, you can book a 'brick wall' session with our Research Officer.

More details will be added as we finalise our program.

And don’t forget to check out the National Family History Month website  – there’s plenty of activities if you’re travelling but, if you’re staying home, there’s also some great freebies under ‘Online Events’.
