EVENTS

The Genealogical Society of Queensland conducts a program of events including classes, seminars, workshops and education sessions each year to provide our members and visitors with a wide variety of information on family history topics.

Our Special Interest Groups also hold meetings. Members of GSQ are welcome to attend.

GSQ imposes a surcharge of 1.29% on credit card purchases paid using the Payway payment facility, which is not greater than our cost of acceptance. GSQ offers a variety of alternative payment options. These include payment by direct debit, payment by cheque, and payment via the Eftpos machine at GSQ, for which there is no surcharge.
