'Tech Savvy Projects--Family History' sessions continue to result in people making discoveries which give them much pleasure, even though there are frustrations which can occur along the way. This is a small class, with members appreciating taking time out from other demands to learn more about, or spend focused time working on, their family history.
Tech Savvy Projects - Family History'’ aims to support participants to use internet based programs, particularly ancestry.com, to research their family history.
We have been approached by a number U3A members who have already done a lot of work on their family history who would like to deepen their understanding and skills in geneology.
If you have skills in geneology and would be happy to either develop a 'Geneology' course or facilitate a guided self support group, please contact Bev Lee on 5762 8171.
Family Research is a guided self-help group for members who are already working on their family tree. Sessions commence with report backs on ‘pains and gains’ during research over the previous month accompanied by shared problem solving, encourage-ment and ideas for next steps. Presentations by group members and guest speakers provide inspiration and suggestions of different approaches and resources. Stories are also shared each month on topics designed to encourage deeper reflection on our research.
