Peter Beer worked in the IT industry for over 30 years, with almost 20 years living in Hong Kong and China. He speaks Mandarin. He held senior technical management roles leading teams across Asia and was always fascinated about leveraging data to assist sales, problem and management processes.
Over the past few years, Peter has leveraged his IT and data analysis skills to uncover remarkable facts about his family history, exploring what can be found online and through ‘networking’ to complement existing family history facts and folklore. 250+ days of lockdown certainly provided a lot of additional opportunity!
This presentation will cover some of these discoveries, with a particular emphasis on ‘how’ this is relevant for attendees – highlighting the many sources and methods that Peter found vital to making major family history breakthroughs. It will also highlight why and where the history is relevant to attendees – for example covering various Melbourne architectural landmarks, including the Spires of St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Comedy Theatre, and numerous houses in Camberwell and Boroondara in general.
