Special Interest Groups have members, and other interested attendees, with specialist knowledge in their particular area of interest. These groups are commonly known as SIG's.

SIG's can be provide attendees with very specific, or a broad variety of family history research material, for example they can be: of general interest on a variety of topics; a particular, or broad geographic area; a specific place (a one place study group); a particular demographic of people; or perhaps just one name (a one name study group).

The Western Australian Genealogical Society currently operate several special interest groups. WAGS Affiliated Societies also have their own SIG's, as do other general community based groups who provide for family historians in Western Australia.
