Family history and genealogy are becoming some of the most popular hobbies around the world. Family history is the second biggest subject on the web with sites receiving billions of hits per year. 

National Family History Week is an initiative of AFFHO (Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations). During the week events will be conducted across the country that focus on genealogy, family history, heraldry and related subjects. 

Mt Barker Community Library is celebrating National Family History Week with two sessions for family history researchers to help find their elusive ancestors. 

Pitfalls in Family History Research 2.30 – 5.30. Graham Jaunay, well respected family history speaker will outline examples of the most common pitfalls and how to guard against them.   

 Problem Solving 6.30 - 8.00. Marie Maddocks, Librarian at South Australian Genealogy Society and an expert on family history research will provide help and inspiration to solve research problems.

 The event will also provide an opportunity to join like minded researchers to discuss your research over a light dinner of pizza.
