Soldiers in Different Armies Forbes Author Talk

Author Brenda Inglis-Powell gave an entertaining talk about her mother, her family’s early days on the farm at Forbes during the early half of the 20th Century and her father’s family in Glasgow doing it tough at the same time in the Great Depression. Then spoke about his family migrating to Australia,  going off to war and coming back to marry and start a family in Queensland – then the children returning for school holiday visits to their Grandmother in Forbes in the 1950s and 1960s. The Forbes Family History Group and some of our elder residents were able to provide her with helpful information to further her family history research. Thank you to all who came along.

Cooking For Copyright: What is it all about?

 

 

 

 

 

Copyright lasts 70 years after the death of the creator for published works, but for unpublished works copyright lasts forever. So old diaries, letters, photographs, and even recipes are locked away. If we had the same copyright terms, our libraries, museums and historical societies could put these on the web for family historians, researchers, and everyone who is fascinated by our social history. We’ve dug into library and museum collections across Australia and found lots of handwritten recipes which, according to the current law, we shouldn’t be sharing with you – but here they are: fair.alia.org.au/cookingforcopyright.

Cook up one of these recipes – or choose an old favourite – and show your support for copyright reform. Tag your photos with #cookingforcopyright and share on Facebook and Twitter, or email fair@alia.org.au.
