Since 2014, Explorers Tree has facilitated regular workshops on Trove and Australian War Records at Penrith City Library, in Western Sydney.

In 2016, a new series of workshops on Photos and Photo books were introduced together with Photo and Family History Forums. Below are the workshop details and dates for March to June 2016 with future dates and venues to be advised.

Participants may attend one, two or three workshops but attending all three would be the most beneficial. As all workshops are hands on, they require the use of computers or a b.y.o. device and an internet connection. Contact Penrith City Library for bookings.
