August is National Family History Month - which is being promoted throughout New Zealand.
The Lake Taupō Genealogy Group which has a display in the Taupō Library in support of this promotion, provides free research at the library every Thursday from 9am to 1pm.
Convenor Terri Foley has been involved with the group since 1982 and says she, along with other members, has a wealth of knowledge to share.
LTGG also holds a number of family history books which are available on loan through the Taupō Library.

An Auckland trucking company wishes to dump millions of cubic metres of industrial waste in a proposed site in Huntly, close to the only 'swimmable' lake left in the Waikato region. In 2012, a Waikato Regional Council scientist compared the nutrient levels in Waikato lakes to 1316 others globally and found them to be among the worst. This indicator has not shifted in the eight years since.
What do you think about the proposal?
