Family History Month is almost upon us!

There are two major events happening during August in New Zealand for family historians, with Auckland and Christchurch both offering Family History Expos.

The ongoing health crisis has meant several international speakers haven’t been able to visit this year, but event organisers are providing virtual presentations instead, and our own expert Kiwi genealogists will be presenting in person. Auckland Expo’s programme [archived version] is now up on their website, and Christchurch Expo’s programme is also available now.

You can check out other family history events taking place, both in person and online, in the Family History Month Events calendar. (Let me know if you’d like your event added.)

August is also Family History Month in Australia. The Society of Australian Genealogists have shifted all their events online until the end of the year and there’s a fantastic range of webinars available, including these two that are free in August:

Wherever you are in New Zealand, I hope you find something to inspire you in your research!
