We're right in the middle of Family History Month here at Auckland Libraries and there are plenty of terrific things going on for a few more weeks yet. Our librarians are still in recuperation mode following the hugely successful and fabulous Family History Expo last weekend (which we'll blog on soon.)
Presentations continue to take place at libraries across Auckland, so check out the library website to see what's on at a place near you.
This weekend Smita Biswas, Team Leader of the West Auckland Research Centre, will be on the Hindi radio station Humm FM (106.2FM) fielding your calls, so check it out on Saturday August 20th where Smita will discuss the value of family history research. Go to the station website for more info.
And this Wednesday August 24th at 12 noon, our lunchtime series features Keith Giles of Sir George Grey Special Collections. Keith will speak on the Carte-de-Visite in New Zealand: a photographic format that dominated family albums in the 1800s. You can book for this, and any other of our upcoming lunchtime talks, on our website here.
Enjoy the rest of family history month, everyone!
