The Bendigo Family History Group (AIGS) conducts monthly meetings on the third Saturday of each month, except for December and, if necessary, may move to accommodate Easter. The meetings commence with Business at 2.00pm and a Guest speaker. Meetings are not exclusively for members - members of the public are most welcome. A gold coin donation is accepted.

The meeting programs usually include a talk by a speaker on a subject associated with Family History, Genealogy or a related subject. There is an opportunity to socialise with other attendees over light refreshments. A selection of Family History magazines and journals are available at the meeting and can be borrowed for a small fee.

Any interested persons are invited to attend. All welcome.
