Readers of the KRU newsletter are invited to two special events taking place in the next month, hosted by Public Record Office Victoria & National Archives of Australia:
A panel exploring Adoption and Wardship records is taking place in Ballarat on the 22nd of April, and here at the Victorian Archives Centre we'll be hosting our annual Dig the Archives Open Day on Saturday the 2nd of May.
Adoption & Wardship
Using Ballarat's resources to trace family
Are you interested in learning more about the records and resources available to help you research adoption and wardship in Ballarat?
Join us at the Museum of Australian Democracy Eureka on the 22nd of April for a panel on how to research family and personal history.
Grace Baliviera from the Koorie Records Unit will be discussing how records at PROV and NAA can help you trace your family story.
Information about a range of support organisations that can help you with your research will also be available after the presentations for consultation.
