Convicts and Germans

Our next family history group meeting is being held this Saturday 6 April.

The morning session starts at 11am in our research rooms and will introduce some early convict records that are now available.

The afternoon meeting starts at 2pm in the meeting room (between Gordon Library and our Research Rooms) in the Old Gordon Public School on Pacific Highway Gordon.
The guest speaker, Allan Rost, is better known to our members as one of the regular contributors to our annual journal The Historian, and the 2012 KHS Historian of the Year.

Allan will talk about his German origins.

Visitors are welcome and afternoon tea is provided.

Also a reminder: the German research special interest group has its next meeting on Monday 8 April at 1.30pm in the research rooms.
