Family History Societies Conference

Orange’s cultural precinct will swarm with family history detectives this week brushing up on all the latest genealogy skills as Orange hosts the annual NSW & ACT Association of Family History Societies Conference. Conference organisers are expecting 300 family and local historians to attend the series of presentations, workshops and exhibitions in the Orange Civic Theatre, Orange City Library Orange Regional Gallery and the Orange Regional Museum on September 22 – 24, 2017.

Highlights include opening the cage on your gaolbird ancestors, telling your family story through food, keynote speaker Christina Henri about her Roses from the Heart project and guest speaker well known author and actor William McInnes.

Registrations can still be made via the conference website: https://yourfamilystoryinorange.wordpress.com/

Friday is devoted to the Family History Fair at Orange City Library from 9am to 4pm where societies and organisations will ‘set up shop’ and talk to you about what’s new in the Family History world. There will be a range of exhibitors and lots of information to tempt new and experienced family historians. This fair is open to everyone – you don’t have to be a conference delegate to attend.

Please be aware that during the conference regular library services will still be available but the Orange City Library space will be disrupted. The library will not be a quiet place and likely not suitable for study. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
