National Family History Month 

July 29, 2016

August in Australia, is National Family History Month , which is an initiative of The Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations (AFFHO)  There are a large number of events focussing on genealogy and family history, being held around Australia and online.

I’m really looking forward to participating. Below are just a few events that I have decided to attend. I need to organise the work schedule before committing to others and I am keen to try some online events.

August 8: Family History Feast held at the State Library of Victoria. The topic for this year is researching occupational records. This is a full day event which also includes the Don Grant Memorial Lecture.

August 11: Using Google Maps for Family History. This seminar is held at the Genealogical Society of Melbourne.

August 17: National Archives of Scotland, Ireland and Wales held at Genealogical Society of Victoria

There is also a bloggers challenge being held for National Family History Month. I’m looking forward to participating and keen to see what other bloggers write about.
