Contribute to Illawarra Women Project
We want to get any and all information you have regarding women of the Illawarra. We want basic information like names, dates and places. Even more we want your stories to illustrate what life was like for everyday people doing everyday things. Information about high status and well known people is freely available but we want to know about the other women, those who supported their families and communities.
There are a number of ways that you can get you information to us:
- If you only have the information on paper (as documents or photos) you can drop into Wollongong librray on Wednesday or Friday mornings and see one of the Illawarra Family History Group volunteers. They will help you to scan the information and will then pass it on to the project.
- Anything you have scanned or otherwise digitised yourself can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Simply attach your document to the email.
- If you have information in a genealogy program (such as Legacy or PAF) you can export it (as GEDCOM or as a document) and e-mail it to email@example.com.
- Any other computerised documents you have, in whatever form (such as Microsft Word), can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll sort it out from there.
When e-mailing please let us know whether you are happy for us to ask you for clarification or if you prefer not to be contacted further.
By sending us your information, in whatever form, you are granting us permission to publish this information to the Illawarra Women project.
