August is National Family History Month and we hope you will enjoy the activities offered by the Society and those of other societies across Australia.
There’s lots of opportunities to further your research whether you’re just starting or have been researching for longer than you care to admit.
Don’t forget to check out the National Family History Month website – there’s plenty of activities if you’re travelling but, if you’re staying home, there’s also some great freebies under ‘Online Event’. And don't forget to register for the free giveaways - you might win a great prize.
Closer to home, take advantage of the education sessions on offer, come to a monthly meeting or drop into our Library and chat to our helpful volunteers. If you're stuck, you can book a 'brick wall' session with our Research Officer.
We look forward to seeing you at one (or more) of our activities:
