English Genealogist Michael Gandy to Speak at State Library

Presented by the Western Australian Genealogical Society (Inc.) in partnership with the State Library of Western Australia.

Renowned genealogist and raconteur, Michael Gandy, is being brought to Perth to speak at an all-day seminar on Saturday 17 November.  Michael is an expert on Irish and Catholic records in England.  He will be presenting three seminars on the day:  English Records for Irish Research; Huguenot Ancestors; and It Gets Easier Every Day (a warning about the dangers of using “short cuts” and being complacent about your research).

Other guest speaker Michael Murray will present DNA for Genealogists – the Layman’s Guide. Mike will provide an explanation of how it works and how you can use it to confirm or discount a relationship.

Tricia and Leonie, the Family History Subject Specialists at the State Library, will also be showcasing some digitised Western Australian historical resources that family historians may not be familiar with. The Library’s eresources will also be highlighted.

A great opportunity to discover family history resources that you may never have considered.
