Welcome to the Society of Australian Genealogists

The SAG has been helping people trace family history for over 80 years. Located in the Sydney CBD, we have a world-class library and manuscript collection, much of which is unique. We run an active programme of lectures, workshops, seminars and tours, have a shop selling books,  charts and software and can give advice on all aspects of genealogy. We look forward to helping you uncover your family's history.

Latest News

  • Our libraries are now CLOSED until Tuesday 6 January at 10am.  Any enquiries during this time should be directed to our headquarters at Richmond Villa, 120 Kent Street on (02) 9247 3953.  Our online shop and emails will be monitored with reduced staffing over this period.  See you 2015!
