Unlock the Past Roadshow - guest speakers Eric and Rosemary Kopittke, authors of the Emigrants from Hamburg to Australasia series and many other publications.

Eric's topic for the afternoon:

  • Internet Resources for German Research - An increasing amount of material is available about people and places on the internet. This talk explores a range of resources available for places in the former German Empire.

and for Rosemary:

  • Australian Government, Police and Education Gazettes - Unlocking a Major Untapped Resource (with a brief look at Find My Past Australasia) - Examine the hidden material in Australian Government, Police and Education gazettes - mostly we consider them to be irrelevant and uninteresting but that is definitely not the case. The gazettes contain information about people we would never find in other records.

There will be free afternoon tea provided between the presentations.

All those attending will receive a discount voucher pack and there will be lucky door prizes as well from Gould Genealogy & History, FindMyPast and other Unlock the Past sponsors.
