Research Rooms @ Coast Centre 2 Curie Avenue, Little Bay

Speaker: Roslyn Van Der Sandt
Topic: 'My grandmother’s diary'
Rossie’s grandmother’s diary was written in 1913 and details her grandmother's adventures over more than 6 months during which she travelled to South Africa and other parts of Africa including Egypt. She also travelled to Northern Europe and the UK. Rossie’s grandmother wrote, on average, over four hundred words each day. The finished volumes weighed three kilograms. The grandmother added much detail and Rossie decided to have it transcribed after looking at it many times and thinking about what she should do. Rossie will tell us about the story and her efforts during her presentation.
