Ask Granny (and Grandpa)

After two years, our very successful Ask Granny Outreach program was finalised in September 2013.  An online evaluation was sent to the local Port Macquarie-Hastings Council who provided the funding for the materials.

The Ask Granny team gladly gave their time (over 163 hours) to run this free program at nine local Retirement Villages, where we were always welcome. In addition, three programs were held in the Port Macquarie-Hastings Library.

We are very pleased to have been a part of the US based Ask Granny program devised by genealogists Greg Crane and Judy Russell, who provided us with the teaching outlines and permitted us to change them to suit our local situation.

The team now has lots of experience in getting people interested in recording their own family details, so we propose to hold modified sessions during celebratory event times in 2014 and mostly at our local Library where we are able to involve more participants.
