The focus of this month's Let's Talk About... event is one that is close to the heart of all family historians. We will be discussing archives.

Facilitated by SAG's own Archives Project Manager, Dr Alexandra Mountain, we will be hearing about a number of diverse archives from Australia and Overseas.

Our speakers include so far:

  • Yvonne Masters representing Manx National Heritage. This is the organisation that manages the Isle of Man's natural and cultural heritage, including its Library and Archives
  • Ben Hollister representing Lutheran Archives, the national archive for the Lutheran Church of Australia and New Zealand which is based in South Australia
  • Katie Edwards representing the Florence Nightingale Museum. This is a museum dedicated to Florence Nightingale and is interested in hearing the stories of nurses from all over the world - it is based in London.

Ben Hollister has been a professional historian since 2007, and a historical researcher since 1997. He owns and operates History Helper, a historical research business, and is contracted at Lutheran Archives as a Project Archivist and Project Digitisation Technician. His research work focusses on German-Australian migration research, general family history services, and specialist family history services for adoption and Stolen Generation cases. H e also offers education, mentoring and publishing services to other researchers, and historical tours, presentations and digital literacy mentoring to the general public. Ben has provided professional Bio.docx services to the AIATSIS Family History Unit and the US production of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’.
