State library talk to help people track immigrant ancestors

MANY immigrant ancestors moved around after they landed in their new country, making them difficult to trace.

Some resources to trace them include diaries, letters and books, reports of government inquiries, post office directories, electoral rolls and newspaper accounts.

Join Stephanie Ryan, senior librarian of family history as she discusses how you can explore these ways to track down immigrant ancestors and learn about some surprises in undertaking this type of search.

Join the talk at the State Library of Queensland Auditorium 2, level 2 on Friday, August 7 from 10-11.30am.

For bookings and inquiries, phone 3840 7775 or visit www.slq.qld.gov.au.
