Saturday, 04 May 2024 - Saturday, 11 May 2024 | 9:30am - 3:30pm | Liverpool | Seniors; General

Join us for an engaging two-day workshop at Yellamundie, where we are thrilled to present "Beginners' Practical Introduction to Family History." Facilitated by Vanessa Cassin, Education Manager at the Society of Australian Genealogists, the oldest family history society in Australia.

Completing this workshop will provide you with a practical toolkit to utilise, ensuring your tree branches grow from solid roots.

While the workshop will focus on examples of records available in Australia, North America, the United Kingdom and Ireland, the skills you will learn can be applied to researching ancestors from anywhere in the world.

Don't miss this opportunity to embark on your family history journey and build a solid foundation for tracing your roots!

Over the two days, you will learn about:

  • Fundamental Tools - family history software platforms, file organisation, research plans.
  • Traditional records (document based) research – types of records, locating records.
  • Electronic databases – Ancestry, FamilySearch, MyHeritage, Findmypast and more.
  • Oral History – preparation and techniques for interviewing family members.
  • Other resources such as Family History Societies, online forums, and education options.
  • Introduction to DNA research including legal and ethical considerations.
  • Various ways to chart, share and publish your findings, including privacy and copyright concerns.
