In mid-October this year, members of the Indigenous Services team visited Cessnock public library to host a series of workshops to help community members and library staff of Cessnock and neighbouring areas undertake Aboriginal family history research.
Participants were introduced to many aspects of carrying out research using the Library collections and other resources. The workshops were also a great opportunity for Indigenous Services to promote their services, projects and programs and highlight how resources of the Library can be useful in Aboriginal cultural heritage research.
To get started with your family history, consult the State Library's Australian Aboriginal Family History Research Guide.
