The Feast is a  day of free information sessions for family history researchers including the annual Victorian Association of Family History Organisations (VAFHO) Don Grant Lecture.  In 2011 the Lecture will be given by Dr Andrew Lemon on the subject ‘ Storming the barricades  : the family history revolution’ .

The event aims to showcase how the major Victorian government agencies for family history research can assist genealogists.

 This year’s event will be held on Monday 1 August and once again will be hosted by the State Library of Victoria.


While it is a free event, bookings are essential and open next week beginning Monday 23 May through Public Record Office Victoria.
