In June his year Dr Madonna Grehan spoke about "Charles Joseph La Trobe and the Regulation of Everyday Life: Implementing the Births, Deaths an Marriages Act".
|RHSV President Don Garden introduces the lecture with an explanation of the|
background to the annual combined lecture.
If you were unable to attend the lecture in June, the podcast of Dr Grehan's talk is available from the RHSV website. Dr Grehan's lecture goes a long way to explaining the difficiulties in obtaining birth, death and marriage records in that early period, and it is well worth hearing.
