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.
