Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - News -

Be part of Na­tional Fam­ily His­tory Month dur­ing Au­gust. It is a great op­por­tu­nity to learn about the value of re­search­ing fam­ily his­tory and un­der­stand­ing the so­cial con­text in which our an­ces­tors lived.

Na­tional Fam­ily His­tory Month has been held in Aus­tralia every Au­gust over the past few years to cel­e­brate fam­ily his­tory. Fam­ily his­tory and ge­neal­ogy is one of the most pop­u­lar hob­bies around the world, with over 250,000 Aus­tralians be­ing mem­bers of fam­ily his­tory re­lated or­gan­i­sa­tions. More Aus­tralians than ever are ac­tively re­search­ing and record­ing their fam­ily his­tory.

As part of Na­tional Fam­ily His­tory Month, Hawkes­bury Li­brary Ser­vice will hold free events at Hawkes­bury Cen­tral Li­brary, 300 Ge­orge Street, Wind­sor.

There will also be hun­dreds of events held through­out Aus­tralia so join in the fun and ex­cite­ment, for more in­for­ma­tion see http://fam­i­ly­his­to­ry­month.org.au
