Our monthly meetings and the Computer Interest Group meetings are held in the Parkview Community Lounge Hall, 75 Queenspark Drive, Christchurch, and our smaller interest group meetings  are held in the Donnington Room of our Library located in the Parkview Community Lounge.

Meetings are held twice a month from February-November on the second Thursday of the month at 7.30pm, and the third Thursday of the month at 10am.

Please feel welcome to join us at any of the meetings!  If you are not a Canterbury Genealogy member we would appreciate a gold coin donation.
