A family history month event
August is Family History Month. What better time to come and hear a talk about the FamilySearch microfilm service at the National Library, how it has progressed over the past ten years, and the changes that are coming soon. What does it mean to those who volunteer for this — and what are the advantages for researchers? It doesn’t matter what race or religion you are — it is relevant to everyone.
Jenny Martin will demonstrate some of the new ways you can research online to find those elusive members on your family tree. Looking at actual registry entries, parish records, gazettes and many more of the records the LDS hold and which you could previously only access on microfilm. Learn how the National Library is involved in helping bring these advantages to you. Even if you think you know everything there is always a new piece of information to be found!
