June 2018

From the President’s Pen….

Here we are, June half way through 2018 already.

Since my last pen to paper we have had Dennis Allsopp at our March meeting give us a talk on ”Strategies for securing your Family History research”

Our April meeting several members shared their research and our May meeting David gave a talk on “Navigating around Ancestry “.

Our May course, “Brick Walls”, presented by David Beddie was very informative and very helpful.

At our June meeting our speaker is Allan Murrin (Joy Murrin’s husband) informing us on FamilySearch and how to use it.

Our other courses for the rest of the year are;

  • Sunday 15th July - Irish and Scottish family research.
  • Sunday 16th Sept – Convict research.
  • Sunday 18th Nov - DNA course.

At our meetings we now have a “Suggestion Box” where you may put your suggestions on how we could improve our Society.

One suggestion is happening on the Thursday the 14th June where we are organizing a bus trip to Berrima, we will visit the Berrima District Historical & Family History Society, the Berrima District Museum and other sites in the area. This we hope will be the first of many outings together.

If you are interested in joining us or if you think of an outing that is different and would be very interesting to do could you contact Denise by Email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone on (02) 46258612.

My thank you goes to all the committee members for what they do behind the scenes.
