Auckland Libraries: My Story

My Story with Fiona Brooker

Wednesday 1 April 1.30pm to 2.30pm Free

When we're gone our stories could disappear. Learn tips and tricks on recording your stories or your ancestors' stories, preserving your photos and memories and how to put them together for publication.

Stay on after Julie MacDonald's 12pm talk on "Do you want to write a family history?" to learn more about publishing your own family history.

Fiona Brooker 

Fiona Brooker has served as both President and Treasurer of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG) and has worked with local branches, including convening the 2008 and 2018 national conferences. She holds a Higher Certificate in Genealogy from the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies. She began her company Memories in Time  from a desire to help others trace their family history. 

She has helped people get started; get through road blocks; get organised and find heirs to estates. She loves to teach family history and digital scrapbooking, and believes there is nothing better than getting someone else addicted to the hunt for their ancestors.
