This year's program is all about schools and school teachers. Schools are often the centre of a town and reflect the good times and bad times but also the fun times like days off for the local show. They reflect the culture and location of the town - early finishes so the children can help with the milking or more pupils attending while the railway is built nearby. Teachers move from school to school frequently and their leave records can provide many details about their lives.
Archives in Your Town
At the heart of every town are people and buildings. We bring to you (virtually) archives about the people and buildings of your town. See digitised archives and remember some of the buildings and people that make your town. Watch the Webinar recordings and take a tour of the highlights from our 2021 Virtual Events.
