GSQ has a new Special Interest Group for GSQ members and others* who are interested in researching their Chinese ancestors who have come to Australia or in exploring the life stories of Chinese people in Australia.

The first meeting will be on Sunday, 17 March between 10 am and midday. It will be by Zoom. Please come along and share your research, including your research problem.

To attend, please email me at chineseresearchgroup@gsq.org.au. I will send you the Zoom link on Saturday, so you can attend the following day.

Throughout the centuries, many Chinese people have migrated to Australia to pursue various undertakings and to lead interesting lives in diverse places around Australia, from cities to regional areas.


  • To provide members with knowledge about family history research of Chinese families in Australia
  • To share findings, ideas and techniques on successfully researching Chinese ancestors and others


The Group meets via Zoom on the third Sunday of odd months at 10 am to midday. Members of the Group are encouraged to bring examples of problems they are having in tracing various Chinese people, as well as examples of successes they have had with their research.

Please note the following changes to dates : 14 July 2024; 13 Oct 2024 (no September meeting); 17 Nov 2024.
