          Robert Nash   "The Huguenots - the almost forgotten people."


Robert Nash was born in London and educated at Oxford and Cambridge universities. He is descended from a family of Huguenot weavers who came from Sedan in the Ardennes and settled in Spitalfields and Bethnal Green. He migrated to Australia in 1991 and 2001 and was one of the founder members of the Huguenot Society of Australia, of which he is also the Secretary and Editor. He edited and partly wrote the society's two books on Australian Huguenot descendants, The Hidden Thread and A New Tapestry. He also helped produce the CD-ROM name index to the Quarto Series of the Huguenot Society of Great Britain and Ireland. He has written many articles on the Huguenots and frequently lectures to various groups, including Probus, U3A and genealogical societies. His latest project was A Directory of Huguenot Refugees on the Channel Islands, 1548-1825, which was published as volume 63 of the Quarto Series, mentioned above. Affectionately called 'Huguenots 101', Robert's presentation "The Huguenots - the Almost Forgotten People" will examine: - who they were - what happened to them - which countries they moved to, as they were now refugees - what they did to survive.
