2012 Margery C Ramsay Scholarship

The Margery C Ramsay and Barrett Reid scholarships are awarded by the Library Board of Victoria (State Library of Victoria) to a Victorian public library staff member to support their leadership development. The scholarships are awarded in alternate years. In 2012, the Margery C Ramsay Scholarship was awarded. The scholarship is worth $30,000.

Information on past recipients and their projects can be found here.

In November 2012 I was awarded the 2012 Scholarship at Craigieburn Library for my project  Family and Local History Services in the UK and USA. I am the  Local and Family History Librarian at Yarra Plenty Regional Library serving the three municipalities of Whittlesea, Banyule and Nillumbik in Melbourne’s north.

In February and March 2013, I will attend two major international genealogy conferences and visit major family history and local history research facilities in the UK and USA.
