Family History Group

9.3045am, Tuesday April 17th

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road Balwyn (Melway 46 F8) and pool cars


Today’s meeting will feature a presentation of David Pryor’s family history by his wife Alma, supported by slides prepared by Garry Kerr. We all know the quality of Garry’s presentations and this one will be extremely interesting.

The first part of the meeting will have at least one member relating an interesting connection he has made in relation to his family.

As usual other members will have a chance to tell of their experiences. All members and particularly their partners and friends are most welcome.



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.
