SHOWCASE 28/29 MAY 2004

Showcase - the Society of Australian Genealogist's annual 2-day family history fair - will be held on Friday 28 & Saturday 29 May 2004 10am - 4pm. Showcase is a great opportunity for those just starting their family history to seek help from the experts. And for those who've hit that brick wall it can be a good way to gain new inspiration & research ideas. Our popular lecture series will again be a part of Showcase & there'll be stalls with books, software & CDs to buy, plus tables manned by government departments, transcription agents & SAG volunteers & Interest Groups giving research advice & look-ups of popular & new records for both Australian & Overseas research. A sausage sizzle & refreshment stalls will operate on both days. Tickets go on sale on 1 April & are $10 for 1 day or $15 for both days if purchased in advance, or $15 on either day if purchased at the door - all GST inclusive. Buying in advance is a good idea as you can study the programme & better plan your visit. Need more information? Contact the Society on (02) 9247 3953 or visit our website at www.sag.org.au
