Upcoming Legacy Classes in New Zealand


Jan Gow is am going to teach a Legacy Beginners class to folk at Whangaparaoa.  She will be there anyway on 21 Feb so the first one will be then. They may come down to Auckland for the second and perhaps the third or Jan will go up there.

A course of Beginners Legacy classes will start on 21 Feb in Whangaparaoa. There will be 3 2-hour sessions. The second lesson will be at the NZSG rooms in Panmure, Auckland, daytime. Car pooling will be arranged and time to research at the NZSG Library will be available. The third meeting may be in Panmure or not, as students wish.

Cost will be somewhere between $30 and $40 for the course.  Places may be limited. Anyone interested, please email [email protected] .

If anyone in Auckland area would be interested in attending some Legacy Beginner's Classes - please email Jan - she will see what she can arrange! Classes would be at the NZSG rooms. Daytime would be best, or Sunday. The rooms are busy now, so may not be able to start straight away.

Meetings will be on the fourth Saturday in the months of February, May, August and November.

2    A group formed in Kapiti on 31 January 2004. They aim to meet about two monthly. Any enquiries to the contact person (via e-mail) [email protected]. Meetings will generally be on the the fourth Saturday of alternate months, being January, March, May, July, September and November (but 2005 each other month).

The Auckland and Kapiti groups are "informal" and anyone can attend the meetings, with door charges rather than subscriptions. The Legacy Users NZ email circulation is available for any and all such group, with the users on a national rather than regional basis. If anyone else is interested in participating in a regional/local group let me know and I will see if there are others.
