(Having problems with the photos, they show in the draft but not on the site. 🙁 )

We had a small but enthusiastic group, last night, to hear John Cann speak on 'Discovering Bankstown'. He gave us a wonderful tour through State Archives, NSW Lands Department, National Archives, Trove and NSW Birth, Death and Marriages. From land grants, to school records and the fire,  destroyed the Torch newspaper. The journey was full of interesting tit bits and how to access the information.

I also mentioned a letter that the group had received from, The Women's Pioneer Society and I've attached the photo, with the details.

Here is the link to the NSW State Library. They offer interesting talks and workshops and you can access information, online, just by having a library card. The card is free and it is well worth obtaining one.
