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.
