National Family History Month
EXCITING NEWS In 2013 National Family History Week will be trialed as a month long initiative! So it's now National Family History Month (NFHM)!
Family history and genealogy is one of the most popular hobbies around the world. Family history is the second biggest subject on the web with sites receiving billions of hits per year. There are over 250,000 Australians who are members of family history related organisations so the month has broad appeal across Australia.
National Family History Month is an initiative of AFFHO (Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations). This popular initiative has received broad support from some of Australia’s leading government and non government organisations. Current sponsors and supporters include:
- Australian Family Tree Connections
- Inside History Magazine
- Gould Genealogy & History
- National Archives of Australia
- Shauna Hicks History Enterprises
- Unlock the Past
During the month events will be conducted across the country that focus on genealogy, family history, heraldry and related subjects including family reunions, seminars, talks, open days, history walks, book launches, film evening and expos. Check your state for details of local events.
Dates for 2013 will be 1 to 31 August
