If you haven’t used the Australian Medical Pioneers Index and you’re interested in any 19th century physicians, then you’re really missing out!
This terrific resource was created by our “own” [Geelong & District] Stephen Due from Barwon Health. Stephen is also responsible for providing our Geelong & District researchers with the digitised copies of the Geelong Infirmary and Benevolent Asylum annual reports.
In November 2011 Stephen was the speaker at the regular Thursday Talks at the Genealogical Society of Victoria [GSV] – as with many of these talks it was podcast for GSV members. Unfortunately if you’re not a member of the GSV you can’t access the podcast but for those who ARE members you can download the podcast and enjoy Stephen’s talk in the comfort of your own home.
OK – I confess – I’m biased – I work at the GSV and I’m the one who catalogues and uploads the podcasts along with the millions of entries in the GIN database which members can also access from home!
SO, if you’re trying to work out a great present for someone for Christmas, why not think about a GSV membership? Of course a new membership also gives you access to the podcasts already on the members menu!
