First and foremost AJGS would like to wish all our members well and hope you are all looking after yourselves at this stressful time. We urge all our members to follow the advice of government health agencies in order to reduce the potential risk of exposure to the COVID19 virus.
Accordingly AJGS has regrettably made the decision to suspend all workshops, both at Lindfield and Waverley, until the danger passes. Also cancelled is the Launch event for ASPJ NSW, that we promoted last week, which was set to happen next Monday.
Most of our members are in the high risk age group and so it is imperative that we all do our part to protect you and other vulnerable groups.
We are working on strategies to keep people connected through technology and continue to encourage you to seek help with problems in your research. You can email Robyn Dryen, and she will find the appropriate person to help with your enquiry.
Another strategy we are considering is webcasts or videos of workshop seminars like the ones we do at Waverley. If there is a subject you would like us to explore please email your suggestions.
This is a great time to do some research or perhaps write up some of your ancestors’ wonderful stories. Other members of your family may also now have the time to hear those stories.
To all our members, If you do need anything and do not have family or friends in proximity, please reach out and we will do our best to help.
Thank you and take care
The AJGS committee.
