We’re thrilled to welcome Patrick Ferry, Assistant Director of Public Engagement for Tasmania and Victoria at the National Archives of Australia (NAA) to our June meeting. Patrick will be sharing hints and tips for finding families in the National Archives. So, if you’re on the trail of an ancestor who served in the Australian military, or migrated to Australia in the 1900s perhaps the NAA can help. You might have someone lurking on a branch of your family tree who was a creative genius, a spendthrift or even a bit subversive. If so, then the NAA might have the information you’re looking for.
The National Archives is a rich source of information for family historians. In this presentation, Patrick Ferry from the National Archives Victorian Office will give an overview of key family history resources in their collection as well as tips and tricks for your research.
Patrick is also the author of the award-winning book Blood, Toil Tears and Sweat: Remembering Pakenham & Districts World War 2 diggers 1939-1949.
