On Saturday February 2 members and visitors with an interest in Family History are invited to join us for our first meeting of the year.
At 11:00 am there will be a workshop session in the Society rooms: “BDMs” – tips, tricks, new areas.
At 2 :00 pm the group will gather for our monthly meeting in the Gordon Library Meeting Room. Guest speaker for the meeting will be Lester Burgess.
Warrawee resident Lester grew up in the Mudgee district, attended a one teacher school at Cooyal, obtained his PhD in Plant Pathology at Sydney Uni, and later became Dean of Agriculture. He has agriculture in his blood, as his forebears settled farms in the Yass and Crookwell districts.
The APS website has a detailed biography of Professor Burgess on its site.
