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

Eric's topic for the afternoon:

  • Internet Resources for German Research - An increasing amount of material is available about people and places on the internet. This talk explores a range of resources available for places in the former German Empire.

and for Rosemary:

  • Australian Government, Police and Education Gazettes - Unlocking a Major Untapped Resource (with a brief look at Find My Past Australasia) - 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.
