New "Bonus" Webinar - Digging for Surnames in Australian Archives by Shauna Hicks

We're pleased to offer Legacy Family Tree Webinar subscribers a new bonus webinar just for them!   Watch and enjoy "Digging for Surnames in Australian Archives" by Shauna Hicks. 

Digging for Surnames in Australian Archives

This presentation was part Surname Society Annual Conference and broadcast live on March 20, 2021.

This presentation will demonstrate how to do surname searches effectively in the various Australian state and territory archives as well as the National Archives of Australia. The online catalogue platforms differ from archive to archive and not all indexes are incorporated into the catalogues. This means there may be two places to search. Digging for Surnames will highlight effective ways to search in the various archives.
