The Meeting is being held on at 9am, 17th Jan 2004 at the Society of Australian Genealogists in Sydney. The Meeting room is located at the Rocks end of Kent Street and is quite a historic building and of course the Rocks is history.

 

The registration fee for the day has been set at a very modest $22.00 per person.

 

Lunch would be at each person's own cost. A restaurant dinner will be booked for those who want to make a full day/evening of it.

 

The main contact is Michael Sedin, and he is happy to put together some accommodation options for out of towners and international visitors. International visitors would be particularly welcome:  as well as being the height of the Australian Summer, the whole of January is The Festival of Sydney - a month of cultural and social activities.

 

Please send Michael an email to express interest, and he will send you a registration form in mid-September.
