Tuesdays at the Archive

Rhonda Kerr

This talk will cover some of the experiences of the group of volunteers from the Society who work at the National Archives every Tuesday, and some of the interesting items and records they have encountered during their work there.

There are stories about murder, rape, suicide, bigamy, drug smuggling, diaries, the struggles some had to undergo during the depression and uplifting tales of heroic and courageous deeds of ordinary Australians. All these, together with some insights into the Japanese War Crime Tribunals post WW2 will be presented.

A rare insight into the holdings of the National Archives of Australia held here in the Canberra repository, plus news of recent acquisitions of interest to family historians.
