Genealogy, or family history research, can take you down a rabbit hole of records and relatives to reveal unexpected connections. Come and learn how you can get started on this satisfying search for your family's unique story. Learn how to uncover unlikely heroes, captains of industry and resilient relations who overcame the odds to settle in Australia. Jewish genealogy presents unique challenges with name changes, shifting borders and of course, the tragedy of the Holocaust. But today we have an incredible range of digital tools and resources available to help track and trace our families through time and space. There is so much to be found in the many records that exist, although it is a challenge. Join this session to find out more - but be warned, it's addictive!
