 However Geelong is the venue this Friday 2 and Saturday 3 September for the Unlock the Past Victorian Expo  to be held at the Geelong Arena ,110 Victoria Street, North Geelong from 9am to 5.30pm both days. The Expo is being organised by Unlock the Past with the support of various local organisations. Pricing and booking details are available on the Unlock the Past website.

With more than 70 exhibitors and some 36 talks on a range of family history topics (see program http://www.unlockthepast.com.au/events/unlock-past-victorian-expo-geelong/program) this promises to be a great opportunity to learn, network and enjoy for the next two days.

If you are interested in finding families at the State Library of Victoria on Saturday 3 September at 11.50am I will be giving a free introduction including details of recent innovations, such as our family history research guides.

I look forward to meeting you if you are attending the Expo on Saturday!
