Family History Group


9.30am, Tuesday November 21st

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


Today, we will have the privilege of our President, Keith Lewis as the guest speaker.

In the first part of the meeting, the program for 2018 will be arranged. This is a particularly important procedure and suggestions for either guest speakers or outings will be greatly appreciated.

As usual after the final meeting of the year, we will go to the Box Hill RSL for lunch. This is another one of our traditional events and has always been enjoyable.

 


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.
