Events of interest

Here are the results of our 8th Unlock the Past poll. 142 people voted casting a total of 684 votes. It seems there is interest in events of all types. Most events will be seminars, fairs and conferences by societies and others, most of which Unlock the Past will support. However Unlock the Past will conduct some regional roadshows. In addition we have provisionally commited to 4 major events – expos in Adelaide and Sydney, a national roadshow and a history-genealogy cruise in early early 2011.

Presenting your research poll results

Here are the results of our 7th Unlock the Past poll.

Cruise poll results

Here are the results of our 6th Unlock the Past poll. 214 people voted. 35 said they had been on a cruise before and 28 sent comments.  With over 205 indications of strong interest (definite, probably and partner)  it would seem that a block booking for 300 could be filled. Inevitably some may not be able to come at the time selected, but perhaps some of the 67 “maybes” could be persuaded. And of course we have only given very limited notice to date.

Age of researchers poll results

Here are the results of our fifth Unlock the Past poll. Two questions were asked:

  • What age bracket are you in?
  • What year did you start researching?

What age bracket are you in? – 460 responses
