We are delighted to announce that CAFHOV member, Dr Sophie Couchman, is going to be the keynote speaker at the launch of this year’s National Family History Month. Her paper, ‘Doing it for ourselves – transcription projects’, will discuss CAFHOV’s recent project ‘Transcribing Chinese travels into Victoria’s history’ where we crowd sourced the creation of an online digital index of three registers of people who applied for Certificates of Exemption from Dictation Test (CEDT).
The launch will be held at the Victorian Archives Centre, 99 Shiel St, North Melbourne, Friday 2 August, from 2.30pm. Bookings essential. Further information: http://familyhistorymonth.org.au/event/nfhm-2019-launch.
