Copy & Change
When we think about our families and where they come from, we find ourselves diving into history. Every family has a history and every family has a story – lots of stories! Stories help us understand who we are and where we come from. Do you know where your grandparents were born? What about your great grandparents? How could you discover more about your family’s stories?

Ideas for using this resource

Using photographs from State Library Victoria’s collection, this package will help you consider Victorian families, from all walks of life, over the past 130 years. These resources will inspire you to think about your own family’s stories. Who are the people in your family and what do you know about them? How can families be similar and different? Take a moment to compare the past and present with every photo, before completing activities that can help you explore your own personal histories.
