Finding family in DigitalNZ
DigitalNZ is a fantastic resource for anything and everything New Zealand, and the best way to get a quick grasp on all the diversity of material is to type in a name – a family name.
Lucy Orbell will talk about her own experience tracking down the stories of her family through DigitalNZ and the new features that the site will be introducing later in 2017 to help researchers gather information in even more useful ways.
About the speaker
Lucy Orbell is the Community Manager at DigitalNZ.
