A Great Find

Meet Colleen Lord. We recently caught up with her in the State Library. Colleen lives in Albury-Wodonga, NSW but her family once lived in WA. She was in the Library tracking down information about her Grandma and Grandad, who lived in Kalgoorlie during the gold rushes there. She and her family are collaborating to write the family history.

When we spoke to Colleen she had been looking through our photographic collection and found a lovely photo of Grandma with her son (Colleen’s dad) sitting on her lap. It was “a great find!”

Colleen is just one of thousands of people who use the State Library to discover their family stories. We will introduce you to some more of them over the coming weeks.
