NZ Family History Month at Auckland Libraries

This is the third year that Auckland Libraries have taken part in NZ Family History month. Each year has been more successful than the last, and this year is no exception.

We have some really fantastic events.

Family history month comprises of several components:
  1. 31 July - NZ Family History Fair launch event -  "A morning with Richard III" in conjunction with the New Zealand Society of Genealogists, NZ Family History Fair, Ancestry 
  2. 31 July - NZ Family History Month launch events:
    12 noon: The Royal New Zealand Fencible Corps with Alan La Roche
    2pm: Using DNA to solve genealogical puzzles with Helen Smith
    3.30pm: Writing family history for magazines and newspapers with Cassie Mercer (Inside History Magazine)

    Events on 31 July are a "taster" and a way of whetting the appetite for the NZ Family History Fair. Of course, we will see you at the Fair too!
