About this event

Join Jenny Bates from the Koorie Heritage Trust this Heritage Month for this introduction to researching Aboriginal family history.

Tracing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family histories poses a unique set of challenges. This workshop will provide an overview of these three organisations, resources, and how they can help: Koorie Heritage Trust - Koorie Family History Service; State Library of Victoria - Koorie Heritage Unit; Public Records Office of Victoria and National Archives of Australia - Koorie Records Unit. Other topics covered will include how to get started, tips on staying organised, overview of what useful records are available, researching names & places, and access conditions of records.

We’re very privileged to have Jenny Bates’ expertise at this special event. Hosted by Peter Webster, Executive Officer Kirrip House, Melton.

Co-sponsored by Melton City Libraries, Goldfields Libraries, Wyndham Libraries, Yarra Libraries, Yarra Plenty Library Service, Darebin Library Service, Mildura Rural City Libraries, Prahran Mechanics Institute, Moonee Valley Libraries, Eastern Regional Libraries and Public Libraries Victoria.
