Family History Matters 
 The blog of the GSV 

Welcome to the GSV Blog

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which the Genealogical Society of Victoria currently stands, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, their Elders past and present, and those young people destined to become leaders.

At this Blog - Family History Matters - you can find news and reports of the activities of the Genealogical Society of Victoria (GSV) and articles of interest about family history and genealogy. 

Members can keep in touch and visitors can discover what the GSV offers.

WE WELCOME YOUR COMMENTS TO ANY POST.  GSV Members can add comments in the 'Add New Comment' section at the bottom of each post.  Login to the website as a Member first.
