In addition to Rosemary and Eric Kopittke from the UTP team, we also heard from speakers from Genealogy SA (www.genealogysa.org.au) and the Lutheran Archives (www.lca.org.au/departments/ministry-support/lutheran-archives/), which is the main archive for the Lutheran Church in Australia and New Zealand. Various vendors were also in attendance, making this a busy two days.
As Unlock the Past's parent company Gould Genealogy is based in Adelaide, we had a much bigger book shop available over the two days, with many taking the opportunity to purchase Unlock the Past guide books, Pen and Sword genealogy books, and much more. I picked up a copy of Blaine Bettinger's Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy, as it is about time I escalated my understanding of genetic genealogy to level 2.0...! In the evening we then had dinner with Ben, Aileen and others from the German group of Genealogy SA, before a final night's kip in SA.
The following are some images from the event - a huge thanks to all who attended! Tomorrow (Saturday) is our final event in Perth, at the State Library. For details, please visit www.unlockthepast.com.au/events/researching-abroad-british-isles-european-ancestors-perth - we'll hopefully see some of you there!
