Discover your family history in October

Would you like to know more about where you came from?  Come and join us at Central Library next week (4-8 October) and find out more about your family history.

Bring in Grandma or Grandad to help you find out more about your family history and have fun finding out about what it was like living in Christchurch in the olden days. You can fill in your family tree, look at old maps and photos of Christchurch, find out what happened on the day you were born in old newspapers, and even have your photo taken with your grandparents to stick in your booklet.

It’s a FREE event so come along to the Aotearoa New Zealand Centre on the 2nd floor of Central Library, Monday to Friday from 10am-12pm.
