Given it is Family History month, it is perfect timing for the RAHS to launch a new history resource on its website – ‘Finding Your Ancestors – Aboriginal Family History in NSW’.
The website contains youtube videos and links to useful resources to get you started on your family research journey. In our first video, Dr Shayne Williams, La Perouse Aboriginal Community, explains why finding your ancestors is very important and gives examples from his own research on what you can discover about your family networks. Historians Paul Irish and Michael Bennet then explain the benefits of reflecting on your motivations for starting your family history research journey. We will be adding more content so contact us if you have any suggestions.
You can also book a spot in our our weekly zoom Q&A sessions on the RAHS Calendar of Events.
Please note that these sessions are for Aboriginal community members.
