#Congress_ 2018 Sydney

June 6, 2017

The 15th Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry is being held in Sydney in March next year. As the event is only held every three years, I’m very excited to be attending.

I have registered and looked over the program which is huge. As yet I haven’t chosen which seminars I’d like to attend, but with multiple seminars occurring at the same time, the choice will be difficult.

Fellow geneablogger Jill aka GeniAus has been posting about 101 reasons to attend Congress 2018. Here are just a few of my reasons.

*So much learning to be done. There is always something new in Genealogy.

*Great opportunity to catch up with fellow geneabloggers and geni-mates.

*Congress is being held at the new International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour.

*The Exhibition hall is a great opportunity to catch up with societies and traders and see  what’s new in the world of genealogy.

*I’m hoping to stay in Sydney for an extra few days so that I can visit Rookwood General Cemetery and the Hyde Park Barracks

There are so many more reasons to attend Congress, but these are just a few that occur to me quickly.
