Shauna's topic for the afternoon:

  • State and National Archives Online: Practical Tips - This talk specifically looks at using State and National Archives online and how to make the most of their online catalogues, indexes, databases and digitised records.

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.

Cost includes tea/coffee during the day - light lunches are available at the Club.
