Family History Month at FHACT

8th August 2022
By Michele Rainger
Family History Month gets underway with free Come and Try sessions for our Members’ Groups

Thought about researching your family’s history but don’t know where to start?

Why not join the members of Family History ACT at some of our events this month and get some ideas!

August is Family History Month across Australasia. To celebrate, we are offering an opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about family history to participate, free of charge, in some of our events that are usually only open to members of our Society.

We offer a wide variety of groups—all run by members, that can help with different aspects of family history research. You can attend any of the following events during August 2022. Just let us know and we can send you further details.
