Ku-ring-gai at Hornsby

A strong contingent from the Society crossed the border into Hornsby to attend the Unlock the Past Scottish seminar at Hornsby RSL with British expert Paul Milner today.

Thanks to the Society representatives Jo, Angela, Jenny and Yvette who manned the KHS table selling books, signing up new members and spreading goodwill from 9 till 5. There were many in attendance who had links with Ku-ring-gai and who stopped to chat about their ancestors and former family homes and schools. We met people from Campbelltown, Penrith, Windsor, Cessnock, Lake Macquarie, Paterson and many places closer to Hornsby.

Paul was an excellent presenter with a great depth of knowledge in his subject area. By the end of the day your blogger's head was near bursting with newly acquired tips and knowledge. I am sure that many attendees would have been in the same situation.
