Notes: THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD ONLINE. Presenter: Pauleen Cass

This event will be recorded and the recording will be available to those who have registered for one month. When we start our family history as newbie genealogists, we are unlikely to anticipate the potential hazards of our research: emotional, ethical, or legal. Over time we become exposed to some of these issues, but we may be unsure of our footing and exactly what our position should be in terms of ethics or legal matters like copyright or privacy. This talk will provide examples of some of the ethical (and possibly emotional) challenges as well as setting out our legal obligations with copyright and privacy. Pauleen Cass has been researching her family history since 1986 and remains obsessed with the joys of discovering and sharing new family information. In 2003 she published her Kunkel family history, Grassroots Queenslanders: the Kunkel family which was the winner of the 2004 Alexander Henderson Award (AIGS) and joint winner of the 2004 Queensland Family History Book Award. In 2006 she gained an Advanced Diploma in Local Studies by online study through Oxford University. She took the leap into the online world and has been blogging since 2009 about family history. Her main blog is Family History Across the Seas.

When time permits, Pauleen also researches the emigrants from East Co. Clare, Ireland, Dorfprozelten in Bavaria, and Murphy’s Creek, Queensland. She is a true-maroon Queenslander whose roots go back to the formation of the colony. Limited places are available for each session, so bookings on Eventbrite are essential when the link becomes available. If you are unable to attend after booking, please advise the organiser through Eventbrite so another person may attend.
