Family Research is a ‘guided self-help group’ which aims to provide support and encouragement to members who are working on their family history. We also plan to provide
- Mentoring for members keen to develop skills in using family history resources such as Ancestry.com; Trove; My Heritage; Scotland’s People and other online records such as Births/Deaths/Marriages, Rates Notices and Cemetery Records
- Links to the resources available at the Benalla Family History Group
- Opportunities to write about our families, with monthly topics such as ‘Found’; ‘A Family Secret’; ‘A Family Treasure’; ‘I wish I’d met…’; ‘In search of ….’; ‘A black hole’; ‘Grandparents’, and more!
We are looking forward to meeting up again next year with members who came to our first and only session in 2020.
