The session will demonstrate numerous forms of charting and the necessary information required for each. It will then demonstrate search techniques, including reference to diverse repositories and instruction on how to best utilise them your research. To end, the session will discuss the importance of appropriate research planning as well as methods to achieve success.   

    Part 2: Analysing the evidence Wednesday 23 June 10:30am-12:30pm. Part two will enhance the theoretical grounding gathered from part one as it focuses on the practical aspects of genealogy.

    We’re starting a new group for fifteen presenters and participants in the “Analysing your AncestryDNA results” program to work together to develop their skills and tell their family history stories using Blogger. You can find out more about the group here-

    https://sagbloggerdna.blogspot.com/p/about-our-group.html

    So if you’re a participant in the program and you’re using Blogger, why not think about joining us. The numbers are limited as we’re aiming to take a very hands on approach during the sessions. Please email any questions to SAGDNAProgram1@gmail.com.

    We’ll meet for an hour from 8pm on the second Monday of each month unless this clashes with other scheduled SAG activities. We’ll then look for an alternative time with members.

    Most family historians feel that they wrung every last drop of information from their ancestor's WWI service record. But do you know how much more there may be in his or her Repatriation file(s)? Someone who saw as little as a year of active service may have been a client of the Repatriation Commission (later Board and Department) for up to 40 years after return. That can generate a lot of records and some of it may cover surprising aspects of life. Billy Hughes may not have understood the full implications of his promise "When you come back, we will look after you", but we can still benefit from its fruits.
