history research. What you can do from your own home and local library, and what resources are available
to take you further on your journey of discovery at Central Auckland Research Centre, City Library.

“Social Media for Family Historians”
Social Media is often in the news, but what is it, and how can it help Family Historians? Auckland Libraries'
Family History Librarian, Seonaid Lewis, explains how Facebook can help you connect with fellow
