The Royal Australian Historical Society will be hosting a history seminar in conjunction with Bankstown City Library and Knowledge Centre in August.
The day’s program includes:
  • Land Title Records – Associate Professor Carol Liston will provide advice and guidance to assist researchers in accessing and using the historically significant records that Land and Property Information is making available though its SIX Portal – the official source of NSW geospatial information.
  • Keeping Track of your History Research – One of the challenges of researching and writing history is to keep track of all the sources that support your findings and arguments. Join Dr Kathrine Reynolds and learn skills that you can apply to history research.
  • Furnishing your Ancestor’s House – Biographical and family history is much more than lists of names and genealogical charts. It is about getting to know the person by exploring their lives and considering when, where and how they lived. Ms Christine Yeats will discuss a range of printed and archival resources available to researchers to help discover how your ancestors may have furnished their houses.
