Family and local history help
Workshops, research and free resources from Jennifer McNeice.
I offer full research and writing services.
Case study: Koonung Cottage history
Managers of Koonung Cottage asked me to write a history book about the cottage. In our initial meeting we agreed that a website would be a better format for this project. I assisted with the successful application for a local history grant, then researched, wrote, designed and published the website.
See the end result in the Koonung Cottage History website.
I offer lookups in Melbourne, Victoria including Public Record Office Victoria and State Library Victoria.
Workshops and lectures
Join me in structured and informative talks to help you discover your ancestors, solve family mysteries and explore the social context of military, land or immigration history.
From local community centres in Melbourne and rural history groups to the National Army Museum in London, I can deliver workshops or lectures to suit your audience.
Choose from a series of workshops for beginners or a range of in-depth topics. Contact me to discuss your special interest.
Enjoy a range of free resources on this site, including popular, easy-to-edit family tree templates, and Australian family history records.
