Members of the library can look at the items from local studies within the library- and borrow the family histories from the general collection.
Here's a sample of three histories :
Uranie Figaro was born in Mauritius in 1816 , the
child of slaves (her parents names are not recorded) , who then became a servant, at the age of fifteen, to a Miss Blanchard, soon to be Mrs Manton. Uranie then accompanied the now married Mrs Manton and her husband to land near the Yass River...
As you can see from this small sample family histories are far from boring. Come into the library and get some inspiration for writing your own family history!
