Learn how to explore the Library collections for your own family's past
August is Family History Month and the Library is offering you two opportunities to have hands-on training in how to get the most out of searching some of our most popular online resources.
Family History specialist Fiona Gray, and Librarian Audrey Waugh, will be available to help you search our catalogues for published and unpublished material, PapersPast's collections (historical newspapers, magazines, Parliamentary Papers (AJHR), and manuscripts), and the UK-based subscription database The Genealogist.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own digital device (a laptop is best) and take advantage of our free Library wifi to access these, and more, databases onsite. We will also have a look at selected collection items.
