Scottish ThistleAims

The purpose of the Scottish Interest Group is to provide assistance to those researching Scottish ancestors. This is done in three ways: providing resources to assist in research; providing opportunities to talk to other researchers; and organising seminars about subjects connected with Scottish genealogy, culture and history.


Membership is open to all financial members of GSQ. No extra fees are applied, though a donation of a gold coin from members attending meetings is appreciated. Donations are used to purchase more Scottish resources.


The collection of Scottish resources available at the Society is among the strongest in Queensland.


Meetings are generally held on the first Sunday of the odd months of the year, unless otherwise advertised. See the Events Calendar for further details

The Resources Centre opens at 10am and closes at 2.30pm. The meeting usually commences at 11am and runs for about one hour, with the remaining time for members to conduct their own research.


The Interest Group publishes a quarterly newsletter, 'The Thistle Times' which is available from the Treasurer, Scottish Interest Group at a cost of $12.00 per annum.

Other Information

The group is a member of the Scottish Association of Family History Societies.
