IF you delve deep into your past, who knows what you may find?
An opportunity to learn more about your family history will be offered at Langwarrin Community Centre this month. A group has formed to help people research and discover more about their past.
Starting this month, participants will listen to guest speakers and share resources in the quest for information.
The group was formed by Kate Storey and Diane Wise. Ms Wise said “I’m an enthusiastic newbie to family history. I love finding out who’s who in my family tree.”
“We’re not experts, but we’ll have knowledgeable guest speakers who’ll cover the basics. We’ll also have a speaker on some of the challenges researching her Aboriginal family history,” she said.
Ms Storey said “I’m happy to share what I’ve learned, it might help someone else. I’ve even discovered a new cousin who we didn’t know, family history research can be full of surprises.”
The first session at the Langwarrin Community Centre takes place on 19 May from midday until 2pm. Four sessions will be offered at a cost of $5 each. To book email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9789 7653.
