State Library Victoria hosts its 13th annual Family History Feast during National Family History Month in August this year. On Monday 8 August, the popular program turns to the subject of researching occupational records.

Discover how Victorian government agencies can help family historians. You can also attend the annual Don Grant Memorial Lecture, organised by the Victorian Association of Family History Organisations (VAFHO). As well there is a lunchtime conservation clinic with expert advice from State Library Victoria conservators.

Check the Library website closer to the event for full program and booking details. I look forward to seeing you on 8 August!

    My family are researching our family tree (MAZZUCHELLI). We would like to visit the library -Family History & Newspapers Room’. I understand the staff can assist us in getting started. Do we need to make an appointment? Are there other avenues we can take at the library to access/research our family history? We would really appreciate someone at the library to guide us along. Looking forward to your reply. (What time, day is the best?), Melissa
