    Just started your family history or need a refresher?

    The Family History Fundamentals course is a three part online course being held on Tuesdays 12 April, 10 May and 14 June, from 7.00pm-9.00pm (AEST).

    Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

    The course will include an e-workbook for each of the three sessions which includes exercises, templates, checklists and list of resources.

    Skill level: All     Presenter:  Danielle Lautrec

    Part 1: Getting Started Tuesday 12 April 7.00pm-9.00pm (AEST). The first of the three-part session primarily uncovers the principles of family history research, with a particular emphasis on understanding the diversity between types of sources. The session will demonstrate numerous forms of charting and the necessary information required for each. It will then demonstrate search techniques, including reference to diverse repositories and instruction on how to best utilise them your research. To end, the session will discuss the importance of appropriate research planning as well as methods to achieve success.   

    Part 2: Analysing the evidence Tuesday 10 May 7.00pm-9.00pm (AEST). Part two will enhance the theoretical grounding gathered from part one as it focuses on the practical aspects of genealogy. A detailed breakdown of source analysis will demonstrate how to recognise errors and overcome research challenges, ensuring that the sources help your research to its full potential. The session will also cover handwriting analysis and increase your problem-solving capabilities.  

    Part 3: Documenting and presenting Tuesday 14 June 7.00pm-9.00pm (AEST). Part three is focussed on how to share your discoveries with other researchers, including: charts, software, reports, books and online, allowing you to choose a method that best suits you. This session differentiates between documentation and presentation, and what is required in the correct execution of both. An important final step is how to ensure your citation process is as easy as can be.

    Arriving and departing: passenger lists to and from New Zealand

    Our NZ interest Group survey showed that most interest and brick wall problems involved passenger lists. Your ancestor had to get to New Zealand first, but did they then travel the “Tasman Highway” to Australia or go somewhere else?

    Pauline Weeks, our group facilitator, will show you what passenger lists are available and what other means you might use to track down your ancestors’ journeys.

    There will be time for discussion so bring along your brickwalls.

    The second Scottish Research Group meeting will have a focus on building resources and getting help with brick walls where everyone can contribute and assist the group. There will also be a short demonstration on how to find the Kirk records for your Parish of interest.

    Resource Building - we have previously asked for you to email 5 resources that everyone can use for their Scottish research and we thank those who have already contributed. It would be good to have more to add to the list.

    Getting help with your brick wall - Write down a research question about a Scottish ancestor who is your brick wall and bring that question along to the meeting.

    Details on resources and brick wall preparation can be found here: https://www.sag.org.au/resources/Documents/Handouts/Scottish%20Research%20Group_Homework.pdf

    This month we have three presenters who have worked with convict records in various ways. This event will hopefully show how family history is part of a wider, public history of Australia and show the different ways these sources can be used to tell stories of ordinary Australians.

    Speaker One: Dr. Janet McCalman, an Emeritus Redmond Barry Professor at the University of Melbourne. Dr. McCalman recently published Vandemonians: The Repressed History of Colonial Victoria, an engrossing tale of Tasmanian convicts in colonial Victoria.

    Speaker Two: Ros Escott, researcher and volunteer from Female Convicts. Female Convicts is an non-profit, volunteer run organization that encourages research "into the lives and experiences of convict women and their children in Van Diemen’s Land; into the Female Factories through which they passed; and into the staff of the Factories who looked after them and the settlers for whom they worked."

    Speaker Three: Eleanor Lambert, Assistant Curator at Fremantle Prison. Eleanor has most recently worked with convict records and artefacts for the exhibition at Fremantle Prison entitled "Transportation." Fremantle Prison is a World Heritage Site, and one of the 11 historic sites that together form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property.

    The "Let's Talk About..." series is a free members only event that will be held on the last Monday of every month. Audience participation will be a focus of these events, so please bring your questions!

    Each month will feature a different topic and the presenters will vary. 

    Do you have a question you are desperate to have answered? Why not submit it in advance. Click on the link to send us your question now https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SAG-Talk-about-question

    NOTE: We will try to answer all advance questions that are submitted, however, at times the volume of questions received means this is not possible.

    A #SAG90 Event

    Registration is free for SAG members and discounted to $10 for non-members

    In 1981 the Society decided to commemorate the forthcoming 1988 Bicentenary by transcribing Rookwood Cemetery.  How hard could it be?  Members had been recording the headstone inscriptions of hundreds of smaller cemeteries for decades, so transcribing Rookwood was the same concept.  Only bigger.  Much bigger. 

    For the best part of the next decade members met once a month to tackle both the undergrowth and other elements to record the genealogical information off the headstones. And then went back with computer print-outs and rechecked each stone again.  Published firstly on microfiche, then transferred to CD-ROM and now licensed to commercial online data providers and indexed in MIDAS, this transcription project remains one of the biggest in the Society’s history.  Join us for this look back at how Rookwood Cemetery was conquered by a small band of Society members and learn about some of their adventures along the way.  We’ll conclude with some research hints about how best to access the headstone inscriptions.

    The Society's Certificate in Genealogical Research is designed for those with more than three years family history research experience and who have gained at least some elementary research skills and a broad, even if basic, knowledge of resources available. To complete the coursework you are expected to extend your research beyond what can be found on the internet and to use local libraries and family history society collections, either in-person or remotely where possible. 

    The course consists of 8 assignments undertaken across a year. For each assignment you will be given the outline of what is required, together with some guidance to consider in preparing your submission. The assignments have been carefully selected to reflect the sorts of skills needed by genealogists and the course is essentially practical exercises in self-directed learning from experience.

    Please see this link for further details about the course and arrangements for cohorts in 2022.
