Join some of our Family History ACT meetings during August and see what we are all about

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 2023. Just let us know and we can send you further details.
