FHACT Hallway Display at Cook
31st August 2022
By Engagement Committee
August is family history month across Australasia and there is no better time to visit Family History ACT at Cook.
The new hallway display Heritage Matters tells the story of our Society beginnings, through cemetery picnics, roadshows, conferences, and congresses to heraldry in the ACT.
FHACT also has a great collection of photos capturing the history and stories of our Society, many of which include the members that have joined in the various activities we’ve participated in and celebrated over the years.
During August a selection of photos from the FHACT family snapshots albums will be on display in the overseas room. Photos of places, events and our members getting out and having fun will be on display. How many people will you recognise?
In preparation for our 60th birthday celebration in 2024 – yes, it’s fast approaching - we also want to hear from you. Do you have any photo gems from a HAGSOC / FHACT event? From the early days or more recent, we would love to increase our image collection to cover as many memorable occasions and members as possible.
Visit the family snapshots display and see if you can add to our collection. Let us know if you have anything to share by emailing email@example.com.
The Heritage Matters hallway and photographic display is at Family History ACT, 41 Templeton Street, Cook, until 31 August 2022.
