This will be followed by the 28th Annual Conference of the NSW & ACT Association of Family History Societies on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September, also held at the Tradies. The theme is Endeavour Resolution Adventure Discovery and takes its inspiration from the names of the ships associated with Captain James Cook's Pacific Voyages. The speakers will explore both the history of the past and the challenges facing family historians as they embrace 21st century technology.
