So, as History Month draws to a close, we’d like to know if you’ve been bitten by the genealogy bug? Are you interested in your own personal history or where your family comes from? In our library we have a dedicated public access computer for heritage and family history research.
As part of our online subscriptions in the library, you can access Ancestry.com to explore your past. We also have other historical books and documents in print and our Bunyip Newspaper available on microfilm for you to access via our microfilm/microfiche reader.
If you’re interested in looking through your past, check out the following links for helpful tips and hints when using Ancestry and Governmental resources.
Family Tree Magazine has a great how-to for Ancestry http://www.familytreemagazine.com/article/10-easy-tips-for-using-ancestry-com
The National Archives of Australia is a good place to start researching and finding information for your family history, war records and caring for your own precious documents. http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/family-history/
If you would like some one-on-one library assistance with Family or Local History, you can book a 20 minute session at the library for Monday 5th June or Monday 3rd July (between 10.30 and 11.30 am). Phone the library on 8522 0123 or pick up a Start-up Mondays @ 10.30am brochure to find out more.
