    Location: Richmond Villa, 120 Kent Street Sydney (more information here)

    Presenters: David Berry and Kathi Spinks, State Library of NSW   Bookings essential: $24 members, $37 non-members

    The Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP) is a rich source of information for family historians researching the colonial period yet it remains an under-utilised resource. This session will pinpoint the records of interest to family historians and demonstrate how to access the information. The full range of finding aids including database access to digitised records will be covered.

    The State Library of NSW has an extensive collection of pictures which can be invaluable to a family historian. In this session you’ll learn how to search and access pictures in the Library catalogue, and also find out what is available to view in our new galleries.
