The Naval and Military Interest Group covers the conflicts of the 19th and 20th centuries – from the Napoleonic War to the Vietnam War – and the men and women who served in them. Our interests are expanding to cover a longer time period and to cover various auxiliary services. The focus is on the countries of the British Empire and Commonwealth, but not exclusively.
The NMIG members can help you expand your family military knowledge with advice on available military records, newspapers and military histories. For a donation to the AIGS, commensurate with the effort required, members will also assist non-members with research.
Membership of the Group costs $20 for an existing AIGS member and is waived for a new member. For the fee you will receive copies of our monthly News Magazine by e-mail, or post, and have the opportunity to attend our February-November monthly meetings.
Our meetings are a mix of presentations, information exchange, show-and-tell, questions and answers, and a good deal of general barrack-room chit-chat about family history research in general – and a whole lot more besides! Refreshments are served.
Join the NMIG and find out what your family members did during the war!
From 2017, we will be meeting on the fourth Monday of each month, February to November inclusive. Alternative arrangements will be made for Public Holidays, if necessary. All meetings commence at 7:30pm and are held in the AIGS Library at 1/41 Railway Road, Blackburn, VIC 3130.
