DATES TO REMEMBER
OPEN DAY –
(If you have an hour or two to spare, please volunteer your time to assist our visitors…thank you)
The last month has been a very quiet time in relation to attendance. The numbers have fallen to a disturbing low. Is there something that your committee can do to make the club more attractive? If so let us know. If you are shy, please make use of the suggestion box as all suggestions will be addressed and the results notified.
To date we have not heard anything from the mining company concerning the request for a donation towards the purchase of the New Zealand BDM’s.
The quotes for the securing of the verandah area of the club have been submitted to Council for approval and we are anticipating a positive response.
Congratulations to the winners in the
Do not forget our “Open Day” on the 23rd of this month. We are open to the public with a view to showing what we have that may assist them in any research. We are not there to do research for them on the day.
Happy researching, David
GUEST SPEAKER – Desley Schafer
(By the librarian)
Our guest speaker in August was Desley Schafer, from QFHS, who gave our members a talk on how to keep your research records. Desley gave us an insight into the many and varied methods she uses in her family history record keeping. She had plenty of useful ideas for us on how to store our photos, certificates and general information for easy access.
Desley then went on to explain in some detail the two genealogical computer programmes she uses – namely Family Tree Maker and Personal Ancestral File. Overall it was a very informative afternoon. There are various information formats on A4 sheets available from the office at 20c a copy.
