Who’s your Mob?

 

If you're thinking about starting your Indigenous family history search but aren't sure how or where to begin, Who's Your Mob? is the helping hand you need.

 

This free, four-part workshop series offers an easy introduction to the State Library of Queensland resources and information available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family research. Build your research skills and begin your journey in a friendly, culturally supportive space.

 

1 | Introduction to Indigenous family history

Saturday 2 June, 10am–12noon

Learn how to initiate your family history research in this beginner’s session with Community and Family Histories. 

 

 2 | Indigenous family history: State Library collection highlights

Saturday 7 July, 10am–12noon

Experience some of the original documents in the State Library of Queensland collection items that may assist with your family history search.

 

3 | Scanning your family photos

Saturday 4 August, 10am–12noon

Discover the importance of digitisation and understand the basic steps for keeping your precious family photos safe. Bring along your personal collections for scanning on the day or come along to this session for an induction so you can book scanner time at a later date.

 

4 | Troving for Indigenous family history

Saturday 1 September, 10am–12noon

Understand how you can get the most from the online platform Trove to progress your family history search.

 

Places are strictly limited to provide a hands-on, practical learning approach, so book fast to secure your spot.

 

To get the most from Who’s Your Mob? we recommend undertaking all four workshops as a singular series. Past participants of the introductory workshop are welcome to book into individual sessions to complete the series.
