VAFHO State Conference Ned Kelly

by vipsinc


Forthcoming VAFHO State Conference 4-5 May 2013 in BALLARAT.

LeighLeigh Olver, one of the Keynote Speakers at the VAFHO Conference on 4 May, talks about his role in using DNA to trace an ancestor resulting in family reconnections.


Senior Collections Advisor Charlie Farrugia will also be attending the Conference. Charlie has written that “During my 25 year career here at Public Record Office Victoria I have undertaken as much intensive work on our Kelly documents than on any others in our collection. … Over the last decade or so, scarcely a year has passed without something relating to Ned occupying a portion of my time. The enormous academic and legal interest in the Kelly story occupies a lot of my time because Public Record Office Victoria holds the world’s largest accumulation of original records related to the Kelly Gang. The Kelly Historical Collection is recognised by the UNESCO International Memory of the World Register.” Read about Charlie’s role in the SBS documentary Ned’s Head.
