Family History is not just about names and dates, it’s about the interesting lives of our forebears
As part of National Family History Month 2019, Liverpool Regional Museum and the Liverpool Genealogy Society present “Beyond the Tree”, an exhibition to promote family history through the curated stories, memorabilia, artefacts and objects of our members – complemented by public programs, talks and children’s workshops.
Objects and stories that at first seem unrelated open conversations of common histories ‘beyond the tree’, and aim to encourage visitors to research their own family history.
Members of the public are invited to bring along photographs of their own special family moments to add to the exhibition. It may be of your great grandparents’ wedding; your wedding; holiday snaps; a photo snapped in the streets of Sydney; a very special memento of arriving in Australia, or maybe even your previous homeland.
The exhibition will have a special open day on 27 July, featuring talks by keynote speakers Jason Reeve from Ancestry and Linda Emery, and lucky door prizes.
When: 6th July-12th October 2019
Where: Liverpool Regional Museum, Cnr. Hume Highway & Congressional Drive, Liverpool
