During the weekend I got to meet many new friends, including Andy Fenton, managing director of New Zealand Micrographics (www.micrographics.co.nz), genealogist Fiona Brooker (www.memoriesintime.co.nz), Kae Lewis, who has created a database of Cork based Protestants from 1650-1850 at www.CorkRecords.com, and many more. In addition I managed to catch up with many current friends, not least the magnificent Jan Gow QSM from Beehive Books!
A great event, some great memories to take away, and all kudos to Seonaid and her team for a superbly run event! Today I head to Sydney, where Dirk and I will be speaking at Parammata oer the next two days - details at http://www.unlockthepast.com.au/events/researching-abroad-british-isles-european-ancestors-sydney.
Thanks Auckland, and in particular to my wonderful hosts for the event, Bryn and Lindsay Smith! Some pics from the event...
