Wednesday Night Zoom 2023

May 24 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM AEST

GSQ would like to invite anyone interested in Genealogical Research to attend the

2nd and 4th Wednesday nights, via Zoom

If you cannot get to GSQ; or working during the day; unable to attend the other Zoom meetings; and just want a bit of help with your research, then the Wednesday nights might be just what you are looking for.

The 4th Wednesday of the month is for a Guest Speaker to talk in relation to specific topics.


“Ship of Death”: researching the tragedy of the ship “Emigrant”.  

“Ship of Death” is Jane Smith’s book about the 1850 typhus-stricken voyage and quarantine of the ship “Emigrant”, the second ship to bring government-assisted free settlers directly to Moreton Bay.
In this session she will discuss the story and the sources she used in researching the events and the lives of the key players in the drama.
The book was shortlisted for the 2021 Frank Broeze Memorial Maritime History Book Prize.


Jane Smith:

Jane Smith is a Toowoomba librarian, hospital archivist, freelance book editor and author of historical fiction and non-fiction for all ages.
Four of her books have been short- or long-listed for Australian literary awards.




The meeting is hosted by Ailsa Corlett, and it is a self help group in which you pose your questions or problems and others within the group offer their ideas, web sites, books and knowledge on where next you might go to find your answers.

The 4th Wednesday of the month is for a Guest Speaker to talk in relation to specific topics.

Come and join us on Zoom.


Please send your name, email and any questions to wedpmzoom@gsq.org.au so that a link can be sent to you.
The link will be sent out on the Monday night.
