Starting Family History
February 24 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm$5
The Genealogical Society of Victoria offers RHSV members & friends an introduction to the resources and skills needed to immerse yourself in family history.
For anyone contemplating researching their family this event is key. It is also of great interest for those undertaking more general research as family research skills and resources can be used to create histories for any characters, not just your family. The GSV has not just an impressive research centre but it hosts a multitude of focused research groups which meet monthly to assist each other with knotty problems. As we all know family research is more than births, deaths and marriages and good research skills and resources are needed to put flesh on bones. A couple of years ago the RHSV was fortunate to absorb some of the GSV’s library when they downsized and we will be hosting joint workshops and seminars throughout the year.
The two speakers will be Jenny Redman (current President) and David Down (immediate Past President) who will cover three topics:
- Introduction to the GSV
- Starting family history
and ending with Q&A.
This event is limited to 15 so that David & Jenny have time to answer everyone’s questions.
