Unlock the Past Events

Unlock the Past is about events:

  • attending, sponsoring and generally supporting events by others
  • organising our own events – where there is interest and support from other organisations or individuals

Regional Roadshows – bringing expertise to you. One of our Unlock the Past presenters will visit a number of cities, towns or localities on successive days, possibly with afternoon and evening meetings in each.

National Roadshows – bringing a team of Australian / New Zealand and, perhaps, overseas experts to conduct meetings over two days and a night in capital cities. These would be people who would not normally visit your area.

Seminar near you – usually a one day event run by a regional society.

Expos – with a focus on wide ranging displays by societies, libraries, archives, museums, commercial providers and other related resources or services.

Themed Conference – a one or two day event headed by expert historians/genealogists (for example, research and writing hsitory, mining, non-British cultures, religious history and records). These could either be in capital cities or a relevant regional location (for example, convicts on Norfolk Island or mining at Ballarat).

History/Genealogy Cruise – these are proving very popular with those who are into cruising and many who see this as a great way to combine a unique conference with a cruise holiday

In most cases this is not adding to what societies are already doing. Most events will be part of a society’s existing program, either as their own event or as a supporting partner. Unlock the Past will be adding value to these programs by providing speakers, support and sponsorship in most instances.

We are open to your feedback and any other suggestions.
