Graeme Davison 2007 talk on podcast

September 30th, 2009

Graeme Davison’s talk on speed relating and the internet revolution in genealogical research in 2007 is available as a podcast on the State Library of Victoria website. It is the last talk and listed under the Don Grant lecture. Listening to this may be an option if you don’t have easy access to reading his article in the latest issue of History Australia.

The August 2009 issue of History Australia has a fascinating article by Graeme Davison on Speed-Relating: Family History in a Digital Age. Professor Davison talked on this topic when he gave the annual Don Grant lecture for the Victorian Association of  Family History Organisations in 2007. I found that a stimulating talk and it generated much discussion afterwards. It is good to now see something in print and I look forward to reading it. I hope it leads to further discussion on this important topic by family historians.
