Tracing Family Histories

At some stage all of us think about our family history – who were our forebears, where did they live, what did they do and how did they come to settle in Australia?  From coming to these shores in chains (now a claim of some standing and not an embarrassment) or by choice, we all have a history stretching back decades or centuries and we all have some curiosity.  A workshop in the Central Library at Eastgardens will help those interested in genealogy to unlock their family history.  The workshop will guide you through the basics of Ancestry.com, a website that assists in tracing family histories and creating family trees.  The workshop will be held on Saturday March 27 beginning at 1.30pm and going through to 3.30pm.  Bookings are essential and can be made by calling the library on 9366 3888. It should be an interesting session and who knows where your own family history can lead you.
