The popular Australian monthly Parade (1947-1981) featured vibrantly painted covers by Australian artists and cartoonists, along with a family history feature called Know Your Ancestors. 

From 1970 to 1980, Australian and New Zealand readers wrote in with their queries, which were answered in the next issue. Do the questions greatly differ from those of today? Join Andrew Henry on this parade through pop culture, social, and family history.

Are you interested in family and local history? Or about the history of New Zealand? Then come along to one of our fortnightly HeritageTalks. Experts in specialised fields deliver these talks and provide insight into our histories.

HeritageTalks take place at Whare Wānanga, Level 2, Central City Library, unless otherwise stated. Booking is recommended.
