About

Cora Num is a fellow of the Heraldry & Genealogy Society of Canberra and she has worked as a professional family history researcher and lecturer for over twenty years. She has been writing and publishing quality Australian genealogy guides since 1995. She has also written and published numerous family histories. In 1997 she established CoraWeb. Today this site is internationally recognised and attracts thousands of visitors each day.

CoraWeb originally grew from a collection of websites compiled as class handouts for various adult education programs in Canberra. These handouts evolved into the book Web Sites for Genealogists published from July 1997 until 10th edition, 2008. In August 1997 a website to compliment the book was launched. It is still online today as CoraWeb and is older than Google!

The Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine has been archiving this site since 20 Feb 1999.  Click here if you would like to see the 1999 version of the site and yes it does have Dougal the search dog.

This version of CoraWeb went online in September 2013. The old version of CoraWeb was retired gracefully in September 2016.

Cora lives on the far south coast of New South Wales and regularly presents to a wide variety of groups and organisations. Further details including a list of speaking topics is listed under Speaking.
