To celebrate National Family History Month in Australasia, the Federation of Family History Societies has updated Our Australasian Really Useful Information Leaflet. You can download it for free, here:
The FFHS has produced the leaflet in association with the Society of Australian Genealogists and Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations.
The leaflet focuses on how to research your ancestors if you live in Australasia. It is also a great resource for UK family historians who may have had ancestors who went to Australasia, either because of forced transportation or due to emigration.
The leaflet gives a long list of websites and has a how-to guide. It also lists family history societies that can help with your research.
Rose Hewlett is very grateful to everyone who replied to her recent email about the GFHS-organised trips to The National Archives. The responses have helped enormously with planning for 2017.
She is pleased to say that for this year the cost remains the same and that there will be the added advantage of a pick up at Whitminster.
Leaving TNA at 6.30pm avoids the worst of the traffic and still allows for the bus to get back to Gloucester around about the same time as usual – so the day shouldn’t be any longer but everyone will have an extra hour at TNA.
The majority of respondents suggested two trips per annum. These have been arranged on (Tuesday 16 May successful) and Thursday 21 September. Fuller details are in the form here. Please send your booking forms and cheques back to Rose directly. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact her.
