C&DHS pay tribute to prominent member Father Brian Maher in its October 2021 journal.

Family History ACT members were saddened to hear of the death of Father Brian Maher in June.  Members will know that Father Maher was extremely generous in sharing his gathered research and information.  FHACT is the beneficiary of a series of archives that Father Maher had built up over the years and this genealogical collection is currently being digitised by FHACT.

Father Brian Maher had also been a member of the Canberra & District Historical Society since 1980.  In a tribute to Father Maher, James McDonald from C&DHS reflects on Father Maher’s early years, clerical career, historical works and the impact he had within the Canberra historical community.
