Fiona Brooker - Course Tutors - Adult & Community Education - Papanui High School
Fiona Brooker is a professional genealogist who has been actively researching her family history for over 30 years, inspired by two marriage certificates and a collection of family letters written from New Zealand back to her immigrant ancestor’s family in Devon. Whilst living and researching in the UK, she studied and gained a Higher Certificate in Genealogy from the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies. Fiona has served as both President and Treasurer of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG). Looking for a way to share family recipes with others she discovered digital scrapbooking and has used this as a way to preserve both the present and the past for the future. She has had layouts published in Scrapbooking Memories, For Keeps and Up2Scrap. With a background in adult education, Fiona has taught both family history and digital scrapbooking throughout New Zealand and looks forward to sharing her addiction with you.
