  1. Hi

    I have developed a Family history resource for people of Indian origin and have been delivering these special family history workshops as part of the Auckland Libraries, NZ research and heritage team for past 5 years. I have recently moved to Melbourne with another role and would love to volunteer to do the same for your customers.
