The Norfolk Island Museum and Research Centre welcome historian Cathy Dunn and her ‘History Lovers Group’ to the island this week. During this time Cathy has offered to present her latest lecture on research techniques and records for Norfolk Island 1788 -1814, a lecture that has been well received at the Society of Australian Genealogists this past week.
Cathy will take you on a journey back to the first British Settlement of Norfolk Island, providing insight into the archives and records that are available, where copies are kept and what can be found online, a fantastic learning opportunity for budding genealogists or history enthusiasts.
A professional family historian, author, tour guide, heritage and public history consultant, a visit to her website www.australianhistoryresearch.info will illustrate the breadth of her knowledge. This period of Norfolk Island’s history has been a study focus for Cathy for many years evidenced by her many visits to the island, presentations and publications.
The lecture is presented at the Research Centre, No. 9 Quality Row, Monday 7 November, 9am – 10.30am at a cost of $20 per person. Seats are limited so booking is necessary. Contact the museum on 23788 to book your seat.
