Ancestry in August – Family History Month 2019

August is Family History Month! Join us for talks by Suzanne Sutton-Cummings from the NZ Society of Genealogists (Hutt Valley Branch).

A Public Talk: Sharing Your Stories

  • Johnsonville Library – Friday 23rd August, 10.30-11.30am
  • Tawa Library – Monday 26th August, 11am-12noon

Suzanne will take us through ways to present your family history – from the basics of recording the details to tips on writing and editing, and creative ways to present and publish your stories, documents and photographs, both online and on paper. After each talk there will be an opportunity to consult with Suzanne about your projects and get further advice.

Research Your Family History
