Unlock the Past Expo

It's Expo time! 

Last night I was on duty at the QFHS stall as part of the Unlock Your Past Expo being held at Centenary State High School Jindalee.  

The Expo is still going today and tomorrow so it's not too late to go along and check it out.

Today there are sessions about online newspapers and periodicals for family history, Convicts, locating ancestor's place of origin in Germany, Blogs, Google+, TROVE and more!

Tomorrow there are sessions on FamilySearch, Mining ancestors, military records, ScotlandsPeople, England and Wales - the census ...and ...well you get the gist ...there's stacks of information.

I didn't get to any of the talks but had just as much fun in the exhibition hall meeting fellow bloggers such as Geniaus and Alona Tester and meeting new friends such as Carole Riley and Kerry Farmer.  

oh yes, and I bought a Flip Pal...and a purple carry case....
