By RICHARD DAVISON
Who do you think you are?
If you’ve ever been curious to discover
more about you and your family’s origins,
or have a specific family history question
that needs answering, next Thursday’s
Balclutha Genealogical Society (BGS) Open
Day is a prime opportunity.
With the explosion of interest in genealogy
fostered by television programmes like the
BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?, and the
increasing availability of historical records
online, there’s never been a better time to
get into the subject, BGS secretary Ruth
Although anybody could catch the bug and
start delving, often it was a specific
question that got people going.
‘‘In the context of New Zealand history, we
meet a lot of people who want to find out
who their early settler relatives were and
what ship they came in on.
Discovering where a particular
relative is buried is another common
enquiry, but it’s really all about
finding out who you are and where
you come from,’’ she said.
With its own, dedicated corner of
Balclutha Library and excellent
resources including a film reader,
microfiche reader and free ances-
try.com research website access, the
club had the means to find an
answer to most genealogical queries.
The purpose of the open day was for
members – on hand throughout the
day – to help people find those
answers, and perhaps catch the bug
themselves in the process, Mrs
‘‘We’ve had anywhere between 30 to
double that on past open days, so the
more the merrier.’’
BGS members would also be
promoting parent organisation the
New Zealand Society of Genealog-
ists’ August Family History Month,
with the theme of Family history is
cool – pass it on, she said.
BGS’s Open Day is open to the
public, and free of charge.

Probiotic supplements improve
weight gain in calves under stress,
a report from Clutha Agricultural
Development Board says. The trial,
one of the largest of its kind
internationally, involving 300
calves on three Clutha farms
with diverse calving practices,
showed weight gain averages in
treated calves of 18g, 39g and 59g
a day respectively. The benefits
appeared to vary according to the
level of environmental stress
which trial calves were exposed to.
The Kaitangata market is on again
this Sunday at Kaitangata
Memorial Hall from 10am till 2pm.
An Auckland advertising agency
has launched a nationwide search
for an organisation working to
prevent child abuse to be given
1000 hours of free advertising
services and they could well be in
the Clutha District.
The 1000 Hours Project will see ad
agency DraftFCB unite with a not-
for-profit or community partner
sharing a common goal to reduce
child abuse in New Zealand.
Applications are welcomed from
any such organisation anywhere in
New Zealand, irrespective of size.
Full details and application forms
are available online at 1000hours
Applications will close on August
