Carole is the founder of the TMG Sydney User Group. The Master Genealogist (or TMG) is the family tree software we use for our own family trees. We find TMG to be the most versatile and fully-featured program available. It is published by Wholly Genes Software in the United States. The group has a mailing list and website which you can join if you have an interest, or a curiosity, about TMG.
We also hold meetings at the premises of the Society of Australian Genealogists every two months. We have presentations by one of the members on a topic of interest to users of TMG, followed by general discussion and questions. Meetings and topics are listed in the Society’s course list. All are welcome!
The Society of Australian Genealogists hold activities and seminars throughout the year, run by experienced members of the Society and invaluable in helping you learn more about how to research your ancestors. Their programme for the next few months is available here.
Unlock The Past promotes history, genealogy and heritage in Australia and New Zealand, supporting events and running a few of their own with national and international speakers.
State Records NSW hold seminars throughout the year at their Sydney and Western Sydney premises given by their experienced staff which we can highly recommend. They also give talks in conjunction with family history societies and other groups. Their programme is available here.
