Victorian Resources for Family History Research

Come and hear Shauna Hicks talk on Victorian Resources for Family History Research - looking at sources that are available online for those not able to personally visit Melbourne/Victoria. It covers the usual suspects such as major archives and libraries but also includes some that researchers might not be that familiar with too.

Shauna has been tracing her own family history since 1977 and worked in government for over 35 years primarily in libraries and archives including the State Library of Queensland, the John Oxley Library in Brisbane, the Queensland State Archives, the National Archives of Australia in Canberra and Public Record Office Victoria. She is currently Director of Shauna Hicks History Enterprises www.shaunahicks.com.au.

Shauna has a number of tertiary qualifications including a BA in History and Anthropology from the University of Queensland and a MA in Australian Studies from Griffith University (QLD). She also holds a Graduate Diploma in Library Science from the Queensland University of Technology and a Diploma in Family Historical Studies from the Society of Australian Genealogists.

Shauna is also a Fellow of the Queensland Family History Society, in 2007 was awarded a Distinguished Achievement Award from the Australian Society of Archivists and in 2009 received the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations Award for Meritorious Services to Family History.
