Guides to researching countries and occupations are among the new additions to our Genealogy collection in the last few months.

Looking overseas, we have recently acquired guides to help you find ancestors from Canada, Northern Ireland, Liverpool. The range of books to help you research occupations continues to expand with the addition of books on tracing railway and shipbuilding ancestors.

You may also be interested to check out a new guide to family history by Nick Barratt, host of the popular Who do you think you are? series in the UK. He has released a new book called Nick Barratt’s guide to your ancestors’ lives.

We also have a growing collection of books to introduce children to family history. Our latest is Family forest by Kim Kane and Lucia Masciullo which describes diverse families that may include half-sisters and step-parents.

The papers of the 7th Victorian Family History State Conference held at Mulwala/Yarrawonga in May this year are now available under the title The border and beyond. You can read a summary of this excellent conference in an earlier post.

We hope to see you in the Genealogy Centre looking up these books or your ancestors soon.

  1. Some really good articles and resources here. Dont forget to search in the main catalogue as i found that the state libary held the original marriage certificate of one of my forebearers – James Boag, the brewer ! I must make time to view it.
