QFHS Calendar Event

Queensland State Archives Visit

Queensland State Archives Visit
Starts: 10 Jul 2023 at 9:15 AM
Ends: 10 Jul 2023 at 2:30 PM
Notes: Let’s go together to the State Archives

We really don't think our members take full advantage of all the yummy info that places like the Queensland State Archives have in their collection - partly because they can seem a bit intimidating if you've never been there before and partly because it can be hard to understand what kind of records QSA holds and why. So we’re going as a group to learn together what’s there.

We’re hoping that an archivist from Queensland State Archives will join our Family History Toolkit session on 27 June to give us the introductory talk on ‘how to find your way around the records online’. That will enable us to explore online and order items for use when we are there together two weeks later. If you're coming to State Archives, be sure to register for Family History Toolkit on 27 June - it's a hybrid session so online via Zoom or in person at Chermside. Click here to register for Family History Toolkit 27June.

At QSA on Monday 10 July, we’ll meet there at 9.15am and start with a guided behind-the-scenes tour – sure to be fascinating. This will take about 50-60 minutes and then we will settle into the Reading Room and dive into the records.

The Reading Room closes for an hour at 12.30pm – we’ll have access to a break room during the day for a cuppa, BYO lunch.

The Reading Room afternoon session is 1.30pm-4.30pm , feel free to leave whenever suits you.
