‘History in Paradise’ on Norfolk Island

The next Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry will go ahead in 2022, in the first week of August, after being deferred because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 16th Congress will be hosted by the Norfolk Island Museum.

It will be held in Kingston, Norfolk Island. The Congress price will include the dinner and a welcome event, and probably be limited to around 200 attendees, depending on how Covid-19 impacts us. Flights currently depart from Brisbane and Sydney, and New Zealand flights are expected also.

The Conference website will soon include all information as arrangements are finalised. More information will be available on the Congress website, the Congress Facebook page, and the Family History Month Facebook pages.

We look forward to seeing you all on Norfolk Island in August 2022!
