Family History Fest

Family History Fest program is about to recommence for 2012 at Diamond Valley Library. This regular program for family history researchers will run monthly on the last Wednesday of the month (except for school and public holidays).

The program aims to provide a series of information sessions on topics of interest for the beginning family history researcher. They will usually be delivered by the Local and Family History Librarian or a local specialist.
2012 will kick off on Wednesday February 29 with
