The State Library of New South Wales is offering Irish Australians the opportunity to attend a free Tracing Irish Ancestry workshop.
The workshop will provide an introduction to resources including electronic, books and original materials, some of which will be available to browse. A tour of the family history area and the Mitchell Library is included in the workshop.
The Tracing Irish Ancestry workshop will be repeated six times during the next two weeks, so you should be able to find a date that suits you. As of this morning, all dates still have some availabilty.
October: Friday 25th, Monday 28th, Wednesday 30th.
November: Friday 1st, Monday 4th, Wednesday 6th.
3:00pm to 5:00pm
Flinders Room, Lower Ground 1, Macquarie Street building, State Library of New South Wales, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia. Tel: (02) 9273 1414
Everyone who attends a workshop will be entered into a draw to win a copy of the Atlas of the Great Irish Famine, which has been kindly donated by the Consulate General of Ireland. The book won the Best Irish Published Book Award for 2012 and provides a never before seen picture of the impact of the famine and includes particular contributions on the famine and Australia.
