The SAG was established in 1932 and is the oldest family history society in Australia. 

We have over 4,000 members throughout the world and are incorporated under Australia's Corporations Law as a non-profit company, limited by guarantee. Our income is tax exempt and donations towards our collections are tax deductible.

Our principal object is the advancement of genealogical education and this is reflected in our education program and collections.

The SAG is managed by a small staff under the direction of a Board of Directors and could not open its doors without the help of a wonderful team of volunteers.
