The 2017 RAHS Spring Calendar is now available to download and view online. There are still a few places available for RAHS Senior Vice President Christine Yeats’ workshop ‘Trove – A “flagship discovery service” for all researchers’, and our long-running Day Lecture series continues on the first Wednesday of the month.

RAHS President Carol Liston will present ‘Land Title Records’, providing guidance to assist researchers in accessing and using the historically significant records that Land and Property Information is making available though its SIX Portal. The NSW Chapter of the Independent Scholars Association of Australia will host an open forum ‘Reflections on Writing Australian Press History’.

Oral History NSW returns to History House with ‘Capturing Memories: Oral History in the Digital Age’ – always a popular event – as does ‘History is Hot’ in which Postgraduate students share their research. In our final joint event with WEA for 2017, Carolyn Williams will discuss her research on ‘Prince Charlie’s Table’, a table owned by the early colonial diarist, Annabella Boswell.

There really is something for everyone as we head into Spring!
