Victoria and Tasmania Discussion Circle

The Victorian and Tasmanian Dicussion Circle is for Genealogical Society of Victoria members who are researching their family history in Tasmania and Victoria.














We aim to discuss and further our research, broadening our understanding of our ancestors in these two states.


Our monthly VIC TAS meetings will include:


  • Research focused on a diverse range of topics from early settlers into Port Phillip and Tasmania, Victorian & Tasmanian Convicts, Land Titles, Wills and Probates, Immigration Records, Cemeteries and much more.
  • We will explore and review our ancestors in new GSV records, Trove, Books, Maps, Blogs and Websites.
  • Presentations by members and guest speakers on topics relating to our research. We also welcome submissions for suggested guest speakers.
  • Assisting members break down their Brick Walls in their Victorian and Tasmanian research.

Vic Tas members receive an email copy of the monthly meeting notes and copies of, or access to, the meetings’ presentation materials when available.  They also have access to a listing of VICTAS members research interests, to foster sharing of research on same-surnames or State research.

VIC TAS Discussion Circle has a closed Facebook group that all GSV members are welcome to join and you can be included in our ongoing discussions.
