UK genealogist and author, Michael Gandy, to present talks at the State Library

Well-known UK genealogist , professional researcher and author, Michael Gandy, will be presenting a series of talks in the Library theatre on Saturday 29 August. Anyone who has heard Michael speak will tell you that he is an extremely entertaining and knowledgeable speaker. Topics include the Irish poor in England, the British in India and tracing middle class ancestors. With additional sessions on hidden family history treasures from the Library stacks by Leonie Hayes; and getting the most out of the FamilySearch website by Mike Murray; this promises to be a wonderful day for all who attend.

The seminar has been arranged by the Western Australian Genealogical Society Inc. (WAGS) as part of their 30th anniversary celebrations and is sponsored by the State Library. Tickets to this special event can be purchased from the Society. For more information please phone Margaret Hickey on 9450 4006 or email

  1. I was very disappointed not to be able to attend the seminar on 29th – I had purchased a ticket, but the date conflicted with a segment of a Museum Certificate Course I am doing on weekends. Is there any chance of receiving any papers from the seminar?

  2. I am trying to do some family research and I was drawn to you. My maiden name was Gandy and My dads name is going to find funny but his name is Michael Gandy and his parents name is leaming rice gandy married to a catherine not sure of her last name and I have a great aunt name roxanne gandy and possibly a betty gandy and that’s all I know and that our family is from england. I would appreciate it if you have any information.
