Open day at Queensland Family History Society on August 22

MANY of us want to know more about our families, where they came from, or what life was like in earlier times.

We may wonder where our families' trials and tribulations fit into the broader picture of history.

What is our story in the bigger picture of history and how can we find out?

The Queensland Family History Society helps people discover their family stories by providing help and resources from the Library and Resource Centre at 58 Bellevue Ave, Gaythorne.

To enable people to see the services offered for themselves, the society is holding an open day on Saturday, August 22 from 10am-3pm.

Volunteers will be on hand to show visitors around the facilities and explain the services on offer.

The society has a number of special interest groups and representatives from these groups will be available to talk to you about research in Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Central Europe, and the western counties of England or anywhere else.

You can find more information about the open day at www.qfhs.org.au.

While you are there, check out the Events tab, www.qfhs.org.au/events.

For inquiries, contact the secretary by emailing secretary@qfhs.org.au.
