Education events

GSQ has had to move with the times. We are living in a different world. Therefore we are experimenting with presenting our education sessions on line. The tool we are using is Zoom. We realise that nothing beats face to face sessions but sadly that is not possible. So we have a series of presentations that will be delivered via Zoom

  • Getting the Most out of Family Search -  new date 25 July: Delivered to your home via Zoom
  • Finding Tasmanian Records - new date 27 June: Delivered to your home via Zoom
  • Google Tools for Genealogists - new date 13 June: Delivered to your home via Zoom

If you are not sure about how to set up Zoom, we are here to help. You can download Zoom from

Changes to the sliders

There is a new way to view our sliders promoting our education events.
Instead of the sliders moving automatically, you will now have control. As you move your mouse on the slider you will a left and right arrow. Move through them at your pace. As well, each slider will have a button on it so you can go straight to the booking page for that session. This means it is simpler to get to the correct location immediately. I hope you like it. If you don't email me at
