Historians invited to two-day conference at Indooroopilly

ON SATURDAY, October 3 and Sunday, October 4, keen historians will have the opportunity to attend the first  Queensland local, family, and social history conference.

The conference, called In Time and Place will investigate the relationship between these three forms of history.

Jointly organised by the Queensland Family History Society, History Queensland, and the Genealogical Society of Queensland, the conference will take place at the Riverglenn Conference Facility, 80 Kate St, Indooroopilly.

Three keynote speakers, Shauna Hicks, Janis Wilton, and Dave Obee will present their interpretation of the relationships between family and local history.

Over the course of the two-day conference, there will be 18 presentations presented by both the keynote speakers and 12 eminent speakers from Queensland.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear some fascinating presentations on all aspects of local, family, and social history and enjoy some time with other like-minded people.

There will be a trade table, so participants will have a chance to buy the latest family history publications.

Details of the conference are available on the website www.itap.historyqueens land.org.au.

Here you will find details of the program and how to register to attend.
