Family History Group


9.30am, Tuesday October 16th

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road Balwyn (Melway 46 F8 ).


As usual, the first part of today’s meeting will be devoted to members’ activities and experiences.

We are fortunate to have Dr. John Carre–Riddell as our main speaker. His topic will be “My Family in Scotland”. John will be presenting this is a form of a trilogy covering generations of his family.

We have had many fine presentations from John in the past and we may look forward to the same excellent level as previously.


 

The Group meets on the third Tuesday of each month.

At “home” meetings, which are held at the Balwyn Baptist Church, members discuss their genealogical research and listen to guest speakers.

However, every second month, members visit relevant places of interest, e.g., historical societies, libraries, museums, etc.

In addition to the research discussions, members also make presentations about their family history and those presentations are always thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.

The Group also  hosts the “start-of-year” lunch at the RACV Club in Melbourne and the “Christmas in July” mid-year lunch, and has visited the Living Legends and Woodlands Estate at Greenvale, the MCG and National Sports Museum, Rupertswood (the historic house in Sunbury), Westgarthtown, the Immigration Museum,  Boroondara and Springvale Cemeteries, Schramm’s Cottage in Doncaster, Williamstown and the Percy Grainger Museum.

All members, partners and friends are always welcome to JOIN US.
