Interested in visiting a museum or place of historical significance in the company of other family historians? We regularly run tours to places of historical interest around Sydney and surrounding areas.
We also offer a wide range of courses and workshops which are not only a great way to improve your research skills but can also help you learn about records that will help you trace your own family history. These are held on both Saturdays and weekdays. We also have regular meetings of Research and Software groups, so if your interest is English research, using software to store your data or writing up your family history, for example, you can come along to informal meetings where you have the chance to share your knowledge and problems with others.
Some of our sessions are ’hands on’ computer courses where you can sit in front of a PC and learn from an expert how to navigate Ancestry or FindMyPast. Other hands-on sessions can be location-based, focussing on how to do online research on a specific county of England or Ireland. Plus you get the handout with all the links emailed to you afterwards so you can put into practice what you’ve been shown once you go home.
And if coming into the SAG’s buildings in the Sydney CBD is not possible, we offer a range of webinars where you can stay in the comfort of your own home while we bring our courses to you! You can watch and participate live, or just watch the recording afterwards when it suits you. Webinars are a great way to learn from us if you can’t physically make it into the city, or there aren’t enough hours in your day.
Check our range of upcoming activities here – we look forward to welcoming you to one of these session soon.
