Meet NFHM 2016 Major Sponsors

In National Family History Month (NFHM) 2016 we are extremely fortunate to have 5 major sponsors in addition to our prize sponsors.

Sponsorship is important as it allows AFFHO (Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations) to maintain the NFHM website and during NFHM (every August in Australia and New Zealand) we NFHM logo_finalgreen_RGB_we're part ofhold a launch in a different Australian state or territory. At the launch we have a keynote speaker and  present the Nick Vine Hall Awards. Where possible we also fly the winners to the launch to accept the Awards in person.

Sponsorship allows us to make NFHM truly national.

In alphabetical order a little more about our sponsors in 2016.
