National Family History Month (NFHM) is an initiative of AFFHO (Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations) and is held in Australia every August.
Without our sponsors fantastic support, we would not be able to coordinate and promote our activities each year. Time to meet this year’s sponsors.
There are three major sponsors for 2017
All three major sponsors are also prize sponsors as well donating subscriptions, DNA kits and vouchers for photobooks. The prizes giveaway is a favourite activity during NFHM and the lucky winners are always thrilled to receive my emails.
Since 2006 the National Archives of Australia has been our launch sponsor, hosting the event in one of their offices around Australia.
