Researching your family history has never been more accessible or popular, says Susie der Kinderen, Publicity Officer, with Queensland Family History Society (QFHS).
‘During this Covid 19 time, people are staying close to home and getting into the fun of researching their family. For the seniors in our community, this has provided a challenge in their technology skills and has given them confidence to communicate with others if they are travel-restricted or housebound.’
August is Family History month in Australia, and many people are getting onboard with attending live online sessions on how to research their family. During August, QFHS is delivering online sessions to members and non-members throughout Australia. The quality of the courses, the variety of content and the professional delivery and experience of the tutors makes these sessions invaluable to the beginner and experienced family researcher.
A special interest group (SIG) meets the needs of those researchers with an Irish, Scottish or central European connection. All the sessions are delivered online.
Get in touch with one of the convenors of the SIG groups and ask to attend one of their meetings.
