Updating your details

Many thanks to the almost 50% of members who have logged into the new site and updated their details.  GSQ strongly urges those of you who haven't yet done this to do so as soon as possible.  It is important that GSQ is able to make contact with you either by email or phone and many members have not updated these details for some time. As we now live in a highly regulated society, GSQ also needs to know your Year of Birth - so that our insurance can be accurately calculated, and we need an Emergency Contact (for "just in case") which is a Workplace Health and Safety requirement. This is all for a good cause - You.

Remember: If you have any difficulties, please contact the .

REMINDER: GSQ is closed on Thursday 26 January for Australia Day.


Our wide-ranging programme of classes, seminars, education sessions and hands on workshops are open to anyone interested in family history. Check out the Events calendar to see what's happening the world of family history. Book an event today!
