Who knew I’d be getting so excited about a trip to Palmerston North??

There’ll be local experts on hand to help you with your family history research, including representatives from the Lower North Island English, Irish and Scottish Interest groups.

Speakers:  Gareth Winter, Wairarapa Archive Historian, and Deborah Shuker, Australian Research.

I’m looking forward to hearing the talks, helping out on the Irish and Scottish Interest Groups stands, and catching up with a few friends (and a cousin).

Save the dates!
