    Webinar 2: Problem Solving Using Mind Mapping and Timelines 16 February 8pm - 9pm. Many research problems can be solved by looking at more sources, but more tricky problems require analytical tools.

This session will demonstrate how to use the tools, with worked examples, templates and instructions.

    Webinar 3: Cite Your Sources 30 March 8pm - 9pmWe are constantly being reminded to cite our sources, but it can seem difficult or a waste of time. This session clarifies and simplifies the process with strategies and examples to help you become a sourcing expert! We will identify the underlying structure of a citation, compare different standards, examine citations for different source types; and address the use of citations in different situations, such as family history software, written reports and online trees. This session is recommended for anyone undertaking the SAG certificate or Diploma courses.

    Book using this listing if you wish to attend all three sessions at the discounted price.

    This is a free session for members of SAG and the Chinese Australian Historical Society (CAHS) who are interested in being part of a proposed joint Chinese-Australian Special Interest Group (SIG).


    The purpose of a SIG is to allow those with an interest in researching a specific topic to meet to discuss their research, help each other with problems and generally share their knowledge of resources with the other group members.

    In this session we will be looking to gauge interest in setting up a Chinese-Australian SIG in partnership with members of CAHS, seek volunteers to co-ordinate the SIG and form a roadmap for future meetings.

    Family history is rarely a straightforward matter. We have all experienced sources providing inconsistent information and family trees with different information or people in them; and we may also have reached conclusions after undertaking complex research. It is important to know how to document your family history in a manner which demonstrates the validity of your conclusions. This session will examine how to present the evidence you have gathered for your family history, ranging from simple statements to more complex proof arguments.

    This session is recommended for anyone undertaking the SAG certificate or Diploma courses.

    SAG members who registered for the WEBINAR: Research Planning, Timelines and Source Citations - 3 course package will receive complimentary registration for this webinar as a bonus.

    Are you one of the many across the world who are actively rummaging through their ancestry looking for those elusive British ancestors who were in India? Since 1600, thousands of British people travelled to the Indian sub-continent to carry out a multitude of roles in running the country–as military personnel, planters, civil servants accompanied by clergy and missionaries. So where can you find the details of your ancestors’ baptisms, marriages, burials, their careers or their work for various civil departments? Once located, how can you maximise your chances of finding your ancestor’s details? This webinar will outline various online records and the tips for extracting as much data as possible.
