Yesterday (Thursday), Rosemary and Eric Kopittke very kindly took us on a visit to the State Library of Queensland (www.slq.qld.gov.au), where we once again caught up with Kirsten, who gave us a brief overview of the family history resources at the library, including microfilm copies of newspapers to the present day, digitised newspapers and other resources via TROVE (http://trove.nla.gov.au), and considerably more. I was incredibly impressed with the set-up, and let's face it, with Brisbane as a whole - what a wonderful place to live and to carry out research, and not just because its winter is like my Scottish summer!!! Thanks to everyone there for the wonderful hospitality, I'll hopefully be back again soon one day!
Next up, we are currently en route to Auckland for the Family History Expo over the weekend, which I am looking forward to immensely, this being only my second ever visit to New Zealand. In the meantime, here are some images from our state library visit yesterday!
