Learn how the experts research history
Researching family history has become a popular past time in Australia over the last decade. Perhaps we're all secretly hoping that our ancestors are worthy to feature in an episode of SBS' Who Do You Think You Are or perhaps it's just the satisfaction of being able to trace your family roots back hundreds of years.

Whatever the reason there are many resources available to the amateur history buff including talks by the Brisbane City Council Libraries. In November there will be a number of talks by the impressively named Lady Teviot, an international lecturer in genealogy and former president of the UK Federation of Family History Societies. She currently operates a professional genealogical research company, Census Company Ltd. She will be speaking at a number of libraries highlighting the many different resources that are available to family historians. In December there will be talks by groups based in Brisbane.

Sessions with Lady Teviot.
