About the event

As the QWHA Archive Team work through the multitude of papers collected in the past, we come across interesting, remarkable and intriguing little stories from colonial women. This time, we are sharing some of these wonderful stories with you: how we found them, what we found and how they affected us. We learn about how different their lives were, and sometimes how familiar they still are to us today.

At this hands-on session you will:

  • see documents that have been unearthed
  • read a romantic story in greeting cards
  • listen to author and QWHA member Sharyn Merkley speak about how information was deciphered
  • learn what we find in old photographs.
