As convenor I often take episodes of 'Who do you think you are?' to class, but haven’t shown one yet as members come to class already 'in the zone', keen to use the time to find out more about their own origins and family stories. It has been a great privilege to support Tech Savvy Projects - Family History group members to develop skills in using internet based family history programs and resources this year and to watch as they make discoveries and deepen their understanding of family ties over time.
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.
