Family History Seminar for Members

On Wednesday 30th August we are holding a family history seminar led by Linda Emery at the Research Centre in Mittagong. This will be an opportunity for both beginners and experienced family historians to add to their skills through presentations and collaboration with other researchers.

Among the topics we will cover will be:

  • Resources held by BDHS
  • Getting the best out of Ancestry and Find My Past
  • Online resources
  • Irish records
  • Recording family history and family history programs
  • Verifying research
  • Crashing through ‘brick walls’

This will be an all-day seminar from 10am to 4 pm. We anticipate the morning sessions will be in the form of presentations with Q&A after each presentation. The afternoon sessions will be more hands on and ‘problem-solving’.

Morning and afternoon tea will be provided at a cost of $8 for the day (bottomless tea and coffee) but you will need to provide your own lunch.

Registration is essential as numbers will be limited so please make your booking at the archives as soon as possible. Telephone 02 4872 2169.
