Unlock the Past Roadshow - guest speakers Eric and Rosemary Kopittke, authors of the Emigrants from Hamburg to Australasia series and many other publications.

There will be a general introduction to Unlock the Past followed by presentations from Eric and Rosemary.

Eric's topic for the morning:

  • Locating Your Ancestor's Place of Origin in Germany - How to use records from Australia and elsewhere to determine your German ancestor’s place of origin

and for Rosemary:

  • Australian Government, Police and Education Gazettes - Unlocking a Major Untapped Resource - Examine the hidden material in Australian Government, Police and Education gazettes - mostly we consider them to be irrelevant and uninteresting but that is definitely not the case. The gazettes contain information about people we would never find in other records.

Morning tea will be provided.

Places limited - get in early as only 40 seats available.

All those attending will receive a discount voucher pack and there will be lucky door prizes as well from Gould Genealogy & History, FindMyPast and other Unlock the Past sponsors.
