German-Australian Genealogy & History Alliance

German-Australian history

Does your society, museum or location have a focus or interest in German-Australian history? Do you have members researching German family or social history? Is there a story that you need to tell about our German-Australian past?

We'd love to see you in Adelaide in August 2018!!

The German-Australian Genealogy and History Alliance formed in September 2016 to help researchers of German-Australian history, heritage and culture to network more effectively. To help this cause, GAGHA will be holding its first conference from 17-19 August 2018 at the University of Adelaide.

With the aim to allow discussion between academic, public, popular and family historians, we are looking for presenters who have a story to tell, research to present, or methodology to share. With expressions of interest already received from the University of Newcastle, AIATSIS, and professional genealogists across Australia, we hope to present a program that captures our heritage, past and present, living the theme of "Reconnections - Recollections - Resilience"
