About Society of Australian Genealogists
The Society of Australian Genealogists was established in 1932 to encourage the pursuit of family history and to provide guidance and resources for those tracing their family trees. We run an active program of lectures, workshops, seminars and tours, and can give advice on all aspects of genealogy. Our library, located in the Sydney CBD, has a world-class collection of resources and manuscripts, much of which is unique to us. We are a membership society but most of our activities and services are available to non-members as well.
• Manuscript material collected over more than 75 years - much of which is not available elsewhere
• Over 2,500 published Australian family histories and biographies
• Copies of many NSW parish registers for most denominations
• Over 1100 electronic resources from around the world
• Local histories, cemetery records, school & post office histories
• Images relating to both individuals and places
• Resources relating to all states of Australia and New Zealand, as well as most overseas countries, especially England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland
• Access in our libraries to the major 'pay to view' websites from around the world
