Annual Seminar: Irish Ancestry

October 24 @ 9:00 AM

$2.00 – $75

No matter where you are in the world then this is the Irish seminar for you!


Did you know that around 30% of Australians and Americans have Irish heritage? Have you been told that most Irish records were destroyed in 1922? Well, that isn’t the case and this seminar will take you through the available records, particularly those available on line.  Join GSQ’s annual seminar to discover more about your ancestry and find the records which may uncover those elusive Irish ancestors.  GSQ is fortunate to have secured two international experts in Irish records, John Grenham and Chris Paton, so you will not want to miss their presentations and their live Q & A session. Additionally, we have four well known Australian Irish experts who will also be holding Q & A sessions after their presentations.  They are Pauleen Cass, Dr Jennifer Harrison, Cathie Sherwood & Helen V. Smith.


GSQ is offering an early bird rate to September 30 so make your booking early as there are limited places.

Book now $50 (GSQ/QFHS Member) and $65 (Non-Member).

From October 1, prices will rise to $60 (GSQ/QFHS Member) and $75 (Non-Member).


There will be raffles drawn on the day with many great prizes on offer.
