Registration closes 4pm Wednesday, 30 April.

For many, the words ‘Ancestry’ and ‘family history’ go hand in hand. More and more digital copies of Australian and overseas records are becoming available and researchers everywhere have access to an ever increasing and varied range of records. This webinar will help researchers make the most of the records that have been indexed and digitised by Ancestry.com. Christine Yeats will examine local history resources as well as key records for researching individuals, whether they are your ancestors or the subject of a biographical study. You will discover the Australian sources and UK records that can best help with researching your local and community histories.
