WHO DO YOU THINK YOU MIGHT BE
Have you ever wondered about your ancestors, looked at some TV programme & thought ‘that looks easy’ then gone to a computer to find out how you can research your family? “You just have to start looking”! If you are a beginner it can be daunting – all that information – where do you start! Maybe you have been researching for years but just can’t break down that brick wall. Help is at hand at Yanchep Community Centre & Two Rocks Library. Beginning on Wednesday 26th October through to 14th December, Angie Beck will guide you through the forest of information to find your tree. Maybe a convict, an ag lab (agricultural labourer) or a Lord?
At Yanchep Community Centre, from 10.30 – midday you will be able to learn how to use ‘FIND MY PAST’. For a small fee you can check Migration records, Military records, Parish records & many more documents (mainly UK). In the afternoon from 2pm-4pm at Two Rocks Library Angie will guide you through Ancestry.com. “You don’t have to know what you are looking for… You just have to start looking.” It can be very confusing if you just put a surname in & then get a million ‘hits’!! There are ways of working out if they belong to your family.
If you are interested please phone Yanchep Community Centre 9561 2039 or Two Rock Library 9561 1110 to book a place.
