The Western Australian Genealogical Society Inc. (WAGS) is the largest society of its type in Western Australia.  We have been incorporated to assist members in researching the family history in Western Australia, as well as all corners of the world.

The Society was formed on the 1st January 1979 with the aim to promote, encourage and foster the study, science and knowledge of genealogy.   This main objective encompasses many other secondary objectives, such as transcribing and indexing records, and provides a forum for people with a common interest in family history.

We have a large family history lending Library which enables members to borrow books on their areas of interest and or research.  Our Library enables members and visitors to conduct their own research using the facilities, which include; Books, CD-ROM's microfiche, microfilm, and connections to the Internet.

We also conduct Education Courses, seminars, lectures and workshops of on a wide range of topics, to assist members in learning more about their areas of interest.  We utilise the expertise of local, interstate and international speakers.

Our Special Interest Groups have members who specialise in particular areas of interest, assist each other, and are there to help other members in overcoming difficulties that arise in research.
