Hello and Welcome,

Terry Eakin will also be at the City of Sydney Customs House Library on Friday to give a presentation on family history research to demonstrate the kind of meetings conducted by our club.  We encourage members to attend this presentation to support and assist Terry. Two copies of "Compiling Your Family History" will be given away as door prizes at the library. More details are in the side panel. 
Alex Zaharov-Reutt will be at ASCCA's Annual Conference on Thursday to talk about "Having fun with technology and keeping safe online". A link to the conference program can be found in the side panel. 
Tuesday 18 November - T Kelly - Tuesday Forum - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Tim Kelly will look at some lesser known but very useful free software programs designed to improve computer efficiency and functionality at this meeting.

There will also be a question and answerer session at the meeting. 
Tuesday 18 November - Family History - T Eakin - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
This meeting is a great opportunity for those readers who think they might like to start researching their family history. 
Terry Eakin will discuss the basics of family history research including how you can:
  •  get started;
  •  research your own family's history;
  • draw a family tree chart;
  • organize the records you discover;
  • use computers for family history research;
  • use birth, marriage and death certificates;
  • make the most of the information recorded on certificates;
  • locate and use shipping records; and
  • find other sources of useful information.

There will be ample opportunity for you to ask questions about any problems you might have encountered in your own family history research.
