What's On - Friday 2 October - Thursday 8 October 2015

Some of the new additions to the QFHS Library

Hallelujah!  For once, something is happening on my side of town ;)  Of course I just want to say that the only thing happening this week is In Time and Place.  

You may have heard recently about the Annual Awards for Genealogy Rock Stars....  This is something fun run by John D Reid and our own dear Jill Ball of GeniAus fame won the Australia/New Zealand section.  Well, the winner of the Canada section was Dave Obee and he is one of the keynote speakers at In Time and Place - so I am very excited. How about that?

Other speakers include but are not limited to:

Shauna Hicks 

Janis Wilton

Helen Smith

Saturday and Sunday morning will be a great mix of family and local history.  I just want to split myself in two so I can attend all the sessions.  

Registration is only $140 - great value for such a feast of speakers.  Go on - spoil yourself.  Monday's a Public Holiday so you've got time to recover or do housework.

But if that doesn't appeal, there is plenty of other goodies on offer....Brisbane History Group has the second part of their great series on Brisbane and WWI. 

And if you are a fan of Art Deco architecture, don't miss the seminar at New Farm Library about Art Deco architecture in Brisbane.  It really is a beautiful book.  

Speaking of history and architecture, don't forget to register for Open House Brisbane next weekend either.  

And then I've been meaning to get to Museum of Brisbane's latest exhibition too, featuring Robyn Stacey's magnificent work using an old photographic technique - camera obscura...Cloud Land...

Really - there is waaay too much do here in BrisVegas.  How lucky are we???

Have a great weekend everyone!
