Scandinavian Interest Group


The Scandinavian Interest Groups aims to provide assistance to members researching their Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish or Icelandic ancestors.


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 resources relevant to Scandinavian research for the library.


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

The Resource Centre opens at 12.30pm and closes at 2.30pm. The meetings usually commence at 12.30pm and take the form of discussions or guest speakers about Scandinavian research, migration or customs.

Other Information

The group is believed to be the only Scandinavian Interest Group operating in Australia.
