Meetings & Activities

Our monthly meetings are informative evenings, with either a guest speaker or one or more members presenting a subject of interest to family historians.

Our meetings are held at 7.30 pm on the 4th Thursday of the month. For the foreseeable future our meetings will be held in the Gisborne Masonic Lodge Hall, corner of Aitken St and Fisher St.

Bookings essential via lorna_jackson@bigpond.com

Members - Free.

Visitors welcome - $2.00 donation.

We also run occasional courses in family history research.

The 2021 Events Diary provides a summary of forthcoming events.

Research Assistance

GGG volunteers are available to assist members and visitors to undertake research using the resources in the Family History Room.

Volunteers are in attendance in the Family History Room on Thursday afternoons between 2.00pm and 5.00pm. Bookings are essential. Phone 5428 3925

The Gisborne Genealogical Group does not undertake research for people. Our aim is to foster interest in family history research and to continue to build our collection of resources for individual family history researchers.

Researchers seeking information about individuals or families who may have previously lived in the Gisborne or Mount Macedon districts should contact the Gisborne & Mount Macedon Districts Historical Society.
