Family History Month Wrap-up

Family History Month is just about over, and what a huge month it has been.  Browsing around on the FHM homepage and looking at the number of events, talks, tours, webinars and activities, the month has clearly been a success around the country. Just looking at all the range of topics offered is mind-boggling.
Campaspe Regional Library has offered a number of Family History talks during the month at all our library branches, as well as one-on-one sessions at Echuca, Kyabram and Rochester.  All classes have been well attended and the one-on-one sessions booked out, even after I opened up more days at Echuca to meet the demand. 
If you were meaning to come to any of the Famiy History Month talks at Campaspe Library but didn't make it, the slideshow presentation for each talk is available in pdf on the Library's website under Genealogy Classes.  Check them out to see what is available - they cover :
  •  Ancestry
  •  Convicts
  •  Familysearch
  •  German History and Research
  •  Introduction to Online Research
  •  Irish History and Research
  •  Military Records Online
  •  National Archives of Australia
  •  Organising your Research
  •  Public Records Office of Victoria
  •  Trove and the National Library
  •  Workhouses
Finally, a big thank-you to everyone who attended any of the events.  Your enthusiasm, eagerness to learn, questions and positive feedback has made our Famiy History Month a success.
