Seminar, 25 Oct 2015 – Researching your World War One Soldier

Sunday, 25 October 2015, 1.30 to 3.30 pm

At the John Taylor Room, Kilmore Library, Sydney Street, Kilmore

Cost – members free, non-members $5, 00

In recognition of the 100th anniversary of World War One, over the past fifteen months, the Society, together with others, has been publishing profiles of soldiers and nurses in the North Central Review. This has created a lot of interest and we will be holding a seminar to show how we carry out the research in preparing these profiles. There will be a presentation, followed by a question and answer session and an opportunity to chat over afternoon tea with the researchers of the profiles.

Representatives of the Kilmore RSL will be present to answer questions on issues such as medals and diaries, etc.

Preserving Wallan’s History

As part of History Week (18-25 October) the Society is holding a meeting in Wallan on Sunday 18th October at 1.30 pm at the old Wallan hall on High Street.

The purpose of the meeting is to encourage interested local residents – old and new – to come along and where possible to bring old photographs and other documents and memorabilia of Wallan. The town has changed so much over recent years that it is important that such items are copied and documented as part of Wallan’s history – before it is too late.

It is anticipated that a representative of the Royal Historical Society of Victoria (RHSV) will attend and explain and promote the possibility of forming a historical group in Wallan.
