Elka and Ethan Connolly, aged three and five respectively, enjoyed learning about their family history at the Central Murray Regional Library on Friday.

The siblings each made colourful family trees with the assistance of their mum, Natalie, and the Deniliquin Genealogy Society.

‘‘We were looking for something to do in the wet weather and knew there were activities here,’’ Mrs Connolly said.

‘‘I thought it was good to show the kids how all of the family is connected.’’

Genealogy Society president Val Hardman said members usually run holiday programs for children in conjunction with the library.

‘‘I felt this works with smaller children and I’m looking forward to helping more young people interested in learning about their family history.’’

Deniliquin Genealogy Society Inc meets every Friday from 10.30am to 4pm at the library and its general meeting is held every third Saturday of the month at 10am.

For more information contact Val Hardman on 58813980, Carol Tresize on 58814314, Bev Clancy on 58812035 or Anne Wilson on 58811405.
