FURNISHING YOUR ANCESTOR’S HOUSE

Biographical and family history is much more than lists of names and genealogical charts. It is about getting to know the person by exploring their lives, and the context in which they lived. One of the ways you can do this is through research into their homes and possessions. Christine Yeats will draw on case studies and examples to discuss the range of printed and archival resources available to researchers.

Venue: History House, 133 Macquarie Street, Sydney
