Talks on Genealogy and Family History
to be presented by Judy Webster

In addition to talks listed below, I am available for a limited number of informal one-on-one consultations at Innisfail and Cairns. Details are here.

Blue pinAtherton, Queensland

Fri. 19 June 2015, starting 10am, ending about 12:15pm.
  1. 'Not Just the Patient: How hospital and asylum records tell the story of a family'.  Hospital, mental asylum and benevolent asylum records have information not only about patients but also about their relatives. Find out what details are available, and where.

  2. 'Ancestors who Moved or Vanished'.  Learn about sources and strategies for filling gaps in family timelines and finding ancestors who 'vanished'. This talk highlights various records that are often overlooked, plus new online resources (both local and overseas).
Venue:  16 Robert Street, Atherton.

Admission:  free.

Bookings / enquiries:  Bookings are essential due to space constraints. Phone Gwen Price 4089 2466 or email gwenp [at]

Blue pinCairns, Queensland

Cairns Library had to cancel my talks because another event had been scheduled for the same day. My talks are now likely to be in August or September 2015.

If your Society or local Council library is interested in hosting a talk, contact Judy Webster to discuss dates, topics, my speaker's fee, and travel and accommodation expenses.
