50 logoUpcoming: Southland Branch's 50th Anniversary : 2019

2019 is the 50th anniversary year of the Southland Branch, which initially began in May 1969 as the Invercargill Genealogists Club. Following approval by the New Zealand Society of Genealogists, the club was accepted as an official branch. The first meeting of the new branch (the 5th branch to be affiliated to the new Society) was held on 19 November 1969.

The branch committee is planning an anniversary dinner to mark the occasion, probably at the conclusion of Family History Week 2019 on Friday 9 August 2019, but which requires confirmation. Once details are known, the event will be widely publicised. Meantime, see the 'Newsletters and Archives' page for some historical records in past newsletters.
