The Hidden Women of the Cyclopedia of New Zealand with Fiona Brooker, Memories in Time
The Hidden Women of the Cyclopedia of New Zealand with Fiona Brooker, Memories in Time (1)

This is an interactive in-person only workshop to uncover those ‘hidden’ women who are never mentioned by name in historical documents.

Outcomes:

  • Individual research on women will be added to a central database and available to other family historians
  • Participants practice research skills and are re-energised with a new (short) project.

*Fiona is also a speaker at the Auckland Family History Expo, 12-14 August.

About the speaker:

Fiona has served as both President and Treasurer of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG) and convened the 2008 and 2018 national conferences.

She holds a Higher Certificate in Genealogy from the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies and began Memories in Time to help others trace their family history. She is a co-founder of Talking Family History.

This event is part of Auckland Council Libraries’ We Read Auckland | Ka Pānui Tātau i Tāmaki Makaurau.
