National Family History Month (NFHM)

National Family History Month (NFHM) is an initiative of the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations (AFFHO).

  • Perth 2016
  • Adelaide 2015
  • Canberra 2014
  • Brisbane 2013
  • Melbourne 2006-2012

Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations (AFFHO)

AFFHO is the umbrella organisation for family history societies in Australia and New Zealand. It was established in 1978 to coordinate and assist the work of Australian and New Zealand groups with interests in family history, genealogy, heraldry and related subjects.

AFFHO is managed by an elected Council comprising of a voting member from each state or territory and New Zealand. Councillors are elected annually by the member societies within their region. The Council also comprises non-voting delegates from those states that have a state association. Currently these are New South Wales/Australian Capital Territory, Queensland and Victoria.
