Ever wondered about the story of your house?
Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga is holding a seminar on how to research the history of your home.

Presenters from Heritage New Zealand, Archives New Zealand, Christchurch City Council, MacMillan Brown Library at the University of Canterbury and a local genealogist will look at the various go-to sources, from land deeds to building and architectural plans, wills, photographs, old newspapers, correspondence files, QVs and rates records.

Our presenters will outline the vast array of resources available (the majority of which are free to access) and show you how and where to look.

The venue’s capacity is limited and we expect to fill up fast. Tickets are $10 and must be purchased online in advance of the event. Credit card and other booking fees may apply.

Light refreshments will be served upon arrival. Presentations will start by 6pm.
