Auckland Libraries Launching Family History Month

This is going to be a great event! Auckland Libraries are launching Family History in an exciting way!!

Details of this event I got off the Kintalkfamilyhistoryblog. Auckland Libraries has a series of fabulous events across the region on a wide variety of topics nearly 50 events across 25 libraries - from Mahurangi in the North to Massey in the West and Pukekohe and Waiuku in the South! There is even an "overseas" visit to Waiheke Island.
Full details of the month can be reviewed hereand include links to the different events happening at the different libraries, speakers' profiles, and abstracts of the talks! These talks can be booked through the host library." 
This Family History event starts August 1st.

To kick off this exciting month, Auckland Libraries has THREE events in one day at Central City Library in Lorne Street.
