Events of interest

Here are the results of our 8th Unlock the Past poll. 142 people voted casting a total of 684 votes. It seems there is interest in events of all types. Most events will be seminars, fairs and conferences by societies and others, most of which Unlock the Past will support. However Unlock the Past will conduct some regional roadshows. In addition we have provisionally commited to 4 major events – expos in Adelaide and Sydney, a national roadshow and a history-genealogy cruise in early early 2011. Check Events for details on these.
