SRO Lunchtime Seminars

The State Records Office of Western Australia invites you to our annual series of Lunchtime Seminars. Featuring a variety of topics, these seminars are designed to inform researchers about the State Records Office, the State Archives collection and historical and other types of research based on archival sources. The seminars also provide researchers with an opportunity to meet fellow researchers, learn about members of staff, and provides a forum for questions and discussions in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Lunchtime seminars usually occur between 12.30 and 1.30pm on the day advertised and are usually held in the SRO’s South West Room, next to the SRO's Search Room, unless stated otherwise below.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their sandwiches and drinks to the Seminars. Tea and Coffee are provided.
