Peeking into your family’s past, unearthing fortunes lost and found, tucked away tragedies and surprise secrets—it’s a personal voyeurism like no other but how do you do it and where do you start?

Heritage listed Bankfoot House is hosting a free family research session with Niles Elvery, senior archivist at the Queensland State Archives at the inaugural Fridays@Bankfoot House Event

Niles doesn’t promise to find your family’s lost fortune, but he will share his insider secrets as well as tips and tricks for making the most of your family research.

Date and Time: Friday 5 February, 10-11.30am

Cost: FREE and morning tea provided

Bookings preferred: 5420 8600

Afterwards enjoy the current exhibition: Chips off the old block - the Grigor children and a free guided tour of Bankfoot House.

Fridays@Bankfoot House are held on the first Friday of every month and include workshops, talks and events held in the Mary Grigor Centre.
