Family Detective: The Traps, Tricks & Triumphs

Information about our ancestors is just a mouse click away, but does this make is easier or harder to piece together a true picture of your family tree?

Life in Irons historian Jenny Harrison argues in many ways researching family history is now harder, and it is more likely your family tree is full of strangers rather than relatives. Join Jenny as she guides you through some Sherlock Holmes approved sleuthing methods to ensure your genealogy research efforts are not in vain. Jenny will also put her methods into practice by tracing the family trees of Brisbane convicts, both past and present.
