Dr Jonathan Richards, the PHA (Qld) President, and a Visiting Fellow at the Harry Gentle Resource Centre, Griffith University, is in big demand this month. His talk at the Queensland State Archive on the 19 May, entitled “A dynamic map of Native Police movements”, is fully booked out. Dr Richards will discuss his digital mapping project based on pre-separation records of the Native Police held at Queensland State Archives. Using historical maps and documents — and GPS software — Dr Richards locates the places identified in these records to build a picture of Native Police movements and activities in south-east Queensland.
The good news for members who are interested in the talk and did not book in time, the session will be filmed and the video will be available on Queensland State Archives’ (QSA) Facebook account after the session.
If such members are logged in to their Facebook account and following QSA on Facebook, the video will pop up in their Facebook newsfeed at the time of the event (starting at 10.30 am next Friday). Our suggestion is to make sure you have ‘liked’ QSA on Facebook so you are following our stories in your Facebook newsfeed and will receive a notification/newsfeed story for the live streaming to your Facebook account. The video will also stay in our newsfeed after the event for those customers who aren’t available at the time of the session. If you are logged into Facebook at the time of the event, you will have the option to comment on the video and interact with us.
For members who aren’t logged into Facebook, they can still bring up the QSA Facebook page on the internet and see the video – they just won’t have the option to interact with us at the time of the event.
