She will speak at Waiheke library on August 12 from 1pm till 4pm. People interested in find- ing out about their own family history should head to Waiheke library this Sunday for an after- noon session with a key family historian. Seonaid Lewis is the Family History Librar- ian at Auckland Librar- ies, based at the Central Auckland Research Cen- tre in the Central City Library. She delivers training sessions to staff across Auckland Librar- ies and is a regular speaker to both library and community groups interested in family his- tory. Ms Lewis has 17 years previous experience as an amateur family his- tory researcher, and often says how lucky she is that her hobby is now her job. The Waiheke session is titled Beginning Fam- ily History and is part of Auckland Libraries cele- bration of family history month in August. Attendance to all the speaker s series across Auckland is free. Waiheke Community Librarian Rhiannon Beolens says Beginning Family History covers how to start researching family history and includes an introduction to Auckland Libraries resources. "If you have an inter- est in researching family history, but don t know where to start, or have started but need some guidance, this is the ses- sion for you!" Beginning Family His- tory takes place on August 12 from 1pm to 4pm at Waiheke Com- munity Library. Turn up or phone the library on 374 1325 for information.

STONY BATTER HISTORIC RESERVE, Gun emplacement tunnel guided tours. See fortstonybatter.org.nz. London's landmarks set the scene for Olympics Watching the London Olympics has been like going on a virtual sight- seeing trip around the capital because many of the events have been taking place in the most popular tourist destina- tions. The event has been seven years in the plan- ning and those taking part and watching live or on television are in no doubt which city is hosting the Games. Organisers have made sure to include as many of the most fam- ous London sites as possible, none more so than the cycling road race which started and finished on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace and travelled out of London through the boroughs of West- minster, Kensington and Chelsea, Hammer- smith and Fulham, Wandsworth, through Richmond Park and Kingston, before taking riders through the Sur- rey countryside. The marathon also starts and finishes on The Mall. The course was designed to pass as many famous London landmarks as possible. Among them are Buck- ingham Palace, West- minster Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Birdcage Walk, the Queen Vic- toria Memorial, St Paul s Cathedral and the Tower of London. South of the River Thames, world heritage site Greenwich Park was the location for the equestrian triumph of Mark Todd and his teammates. Even the jumps for the final day s showjumping depicted famous sites. South-east of the capital, Hampton Court Palace, former home of King Henry VIII and his many wives, was the backdrop for the road cycling time trials. Just behind Downing St -- home to British Prime Minister David Cameron -- is Horse Guards Parade known for the Trooping of the Colour ceremony on the Queen s official birth- day. Gleaming horses and starched uniforms gave way to the unlikely sight of skimpy beach- wear because it was the venue for the beach vol- leyball competitions. Hyde Park is the largest of London s open spaces and contains the Serpentine Lake -- per- fect for marathon swim- ming and the triathlon events. The famous sporting landmark of Lord s Cricket Ground fea- tured in the archery competitions where the sound of bat on willow lost out to the thud of arrow on target. Fresh from the grand slam event, the world famous facilities at Wimbledon came back on the television screens with gold medals in the tennis competition fought over by the likes of Serena Williams and Andy Murray.

The site gives up- to-date news and results, and offers the opportunity to send messages of support to all the Kiwi competitors.
