Talks on Genealogy and Family History
to be presented by Judy Webster

Feedback from previous seminars: "Your seminar (Family History Tasks for the Time Poor) was fantastic. After hearing your talk, I am now inspired and moving on with the ancestors!" (Margaret M.);   "I gained so much from the seminar and have already put your suggestions to good use and found information that had previously proved elusive" (Jenny C).   "Found my 2nd great-grandfather's will on Findmypast after your workshop. Thank you." (Sue F).


I will be available for talks during the second half of this year (after taking a break for family reasons) - and I am interested in doing a 'genealogy road trip' to Central Queensland and North Queensland during winter... so see the information below.
