NOTES ON MY GUEST SPEAKER TOPICS:
‘History Behind the Horseshoe’. In this power point presentation I highlight Peel Island’s history including pre-European occupation, its use by Europeans and, in 2007, the Island’s gazettal as a National Park and Conservation Park and the Lazaret Buildings as a Heritage Site. I also look at Peel’s future when the island will be placed under the full control of the Quandamooka People, under whose guidance a new era of tourism and cultural exchange holds great promise.
‘Port of Brisbane’ In this power point presentation I follow the development of our port from its wharves in the city centre and move with them downriver to their present location at Fisherman Islands. It is also a history of the Brisbane River itself, from Aboriginal times to the present day, encompassing our association with the river through commerce, study, and recreation.
Family History Begins at Home’. This power point presentation is not just a straight ‘how to research family history’, but more about the things I have found interesting in my own family history which could be applied to other family history research.
