Session 2, Presentation by Dave Botherway, the NBN
In recent times, for all of us who value our internet connection, three letters have become dominant in our thoughts on this subject. They are NBN, the National Broadband Network. At the Melb PC User meeting held at Moorabbin on Wednesday, 7th June, Dave Botherway presented a very comprehensive survey of what the NBN is all about.
Dave has agreed to come to this meeting to deliver this presentation to us. Many of us who live on the Mornington Peninsula now have access to this technology and the results have been varied. Dave’s coverage of this subject will enable you to understand the complexities of the NBN.
The Family History Group will commence its meeting at 1:30pm, with Colin Ackehurst as the Convenor. Colin will be sending an Agenda to all of our members who attend the Family History Group. If you do not receive the agenda, and would like a copy, please contact Colin Ackehurst at Colin Ackehurst
The Advanced DNA Group held its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, 26th July. This is a complex subject and it still has a long way to go. Not everyone has yet established any ancestors by this method, but it is still believed to be the direction where genealogical research will go. The next meeting of the Advanced DNA Group will be held at 2:00pm on Wednesday, 28th August, at the Information Centre. If you are interested and are not receiving Colin Ackehurst’s e-mail about this meeting, please contact him on the address shown in the paragraph above.
Regards, Ian Thomson, on behalf of the Mornington Peninsula P.C.U.G. Committee Ian Thomson
