National Family History Month will be launched in Perth to raise awareness of the various aspects of genealogy and family history including local history and military history.
Family history and genealogy is one of the most popular hobbies
around the world. There are over 250,000 Australians who are members of
family history related organisations and the month has broad appeal
across Australia. Libraries, archives and other organisations also
participate in National Family History Month.
During August events will be conducted across Australia and
online that focus on genealogy, family history, heraldry and related
subjects. Check your state for details of local events and remember to
check online events which you can do at home.
