Branch General Meeting

At the Branch General Meeting, all committee positions will be declared vacant and we’ll elect a new group to lead us through the next twelve months.

A light supper will be served.

Where: Ground floor at 121 Macquarie Street (behind St David’s Cathedral). Car parking access via laneway opposite Hadley’s Hotel in Murray Street.

Compiling a family history: How to manage the project and still be friends

Susan Scott is an Accredited Editor, poet, farmer, and terrific jam maker.

From the Proteus to Prosperity was published in May 2018, but as with many family histories, its path was not smooth. It was part-complete when Susan took the project over and managed it through to publication.

Susan will share with us some of the challenges she encountered while compiling this work.

A light supper will be provided.
