What's On - Friday 4th March - Thursday 10th March 2016

It's the little things in life that make it special isn't it?  Like weekends with a friend.  Not that my friend is especially little.  But Loani is very thoughtful and puts little touches like flowers in the bathroom as pictured above.  

Oh yes, and I survived my first foray into teaching.  Of course I wish I had done a better job.  I was sick with nervousness beforehand - but thankfully had my brother-in-law and sister-in-law to wish me well and toast my good health on my return to their abode.  Thanks Pat and Terry for "putting me up" or "putting up with me" while we roll out this first Beginners course at QFHS. We already have 5 people on the wait-list for the next one.  How about that?

But the BIG news in town this week is that Judy Russell (known as the Legal Genealogist) and Carol Baxter (known as the History Detective and internationally acclaimed and award-winning author specialising in genealogy and history) will be presenting a one-day seminar on Circumstantial evidence - DNA ethics - research strategies on Saturday.  If you book TODAY you will receive a great discount... $39.50 full day, $29.50 half day.  If you leave it any later than today, then you'll pay the prices as follows: $50 full day, $35 half day.  So don't delay!  To book, click here.  Thanks to dear Gould Genealogy and Unlock the Past for putting this on and making available some of the great speakers on the Unlock the Past cruises for the land-lubbers that can't or won't go cruising.

Want a walk in the great outdoors this weekend?  Why not try out the new Heritage Trail from Brisbane City Council? Wander through Wynnum.  For more information click here.

Here's a little overview of what's on in the south east corner of Queensland this week, family history wise. I hope you have a great week.
