National Family History Month 2017 Photographic Display & Ancestry DNA Forum


Lithgow Library National Family History Month Event was a great success with guest speaker Katherine Leighton’s inspiring adoptee tale a hit with the large crowd. This was followed by an open forum led by Kathy and well-known local Vicki Hartley with many participants from the crowd contributing to the discussion of family history research using DNA testing.

Still on display at the Library are the photographs, by David Rawsthorne, replicating the ancestor images of two well-known members of the Lithgow Living History Re-enactment Group, family historian Vicki Hartley and Heritage and Development Consultant Ian Rufus.

The library’s next speaker event will be in History Week 7th September, 2017
