Heritage research seminar at Noosa Junction
In July the John Oxley Library, in conjunction with the National Archives of Australia and the Queensland State Archives held a public research seminar at Noosa Junction.
63 participants from the Sunshine Coast region, including members of various local history and genealogy societies, enjoyed overview presentations on collections and services by Simon Farley from the State Library’s Heritage Collections, Mairi Popplewell from the National Archives of Australia’s Brisbane office, and Niles Elvery from the Queensland State Archives.
The seminar was followed by a meeting of Queensland’s Public Records Review Committee. Special thanks to Niles Elvery for organizing this event and to all who attended for their interesting questions and contributions.
