Introduction to Family History Research for Seniors

Many people say that the key to a person’s future is understanding their past.  All of us have unique family histories, where our predecessors may have impacted or been impacted through their own enterprises, living conditions and the events of their times.

On October 28th and 29th, Caloundra Family History Research Inc (CFHR) is offering a day-and-a-half course: An Introduction to Family History Research for Seniors. These training sessions break down the daunting task of where to begin, into manageable bite-sized pieces.

On Day One, we will explore what type of information you may need.  It might be oral history, stories from the past, hard copies or other records.

We delve into the types of digital records that are available in genealogy programs, various archives, libraries, newspapers, military records and an overview of the resources that CFHR offers in its rooms.

Day Two starts at 1:00 pm. We will break into two groups. Each group will have a chance to explore their family history on our computers and view short videos. 

Training notes will be forwarded to participants.

Would you like to leave your family a unique, priceless treasure? It’s easy.  Leave them the legacy of your family history. We look forward to meeting you.
