What's in a name?

Western Australia Week - Success for some2014 WAGS WA Week Library Display

WAGS Open Day (June 5)  saw a good number of vistitors through the door, with 19 new members signing on the dotted line.

So, what's in a name? A good deal apparently!

One of our visitors had a great experience finding out about a relative that they had scant information about.

On arrival at WAGS, armed with a name and a little knowledge, our interpid visitor went away with a great deal of new knowledge and a bag of homework to further her family history. One great outcome was that they may now have cousins that they didn't know about, and another being that her man was a soldier who served in the 11th Battalion A.I.F. and is very likely to feature in the Cheops photo

Not bad for a short session with some experienced WAGS researchers.

Other visitors went away with similar new found knowledge and some good hints and tips on genealogy research.

Thanks are due to the WAGS volunteers who gave their time to assist the visitors in their quest for knowledge. Volunteers assisting were from the WA Special Interest Groups - Swan River Pioneers; Western Australian; Convict; Enrolled Pensioner Guards; WAGS 11th Battalion Cheops project; plus the Computer Group and WAGS Library volunteers.
