Genealogical Society of Queensland Inc

The Genealogical Society of Queensland was established as the first Family History association in Queensland in 1978.

Its mission is 'helping to discover your family history'.  It specialises in family history in the Australian state of Queensland but provides its member with facilities that cover the world.

It was awarded the 17th Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry by the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations Inc in July 2023 and the 5th History Queensland State Conference in August 2023.

AFFHO - Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations Inc

The Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations (AFFHO) aims to promote, preserve, and foster the study of family history, genealogy, and related subjects in Australia and New Zealand. AFFHO provides support to member family history organisations in the form of resources, networking opportunities, and educational programs so that these groups can better assist their members in the pursuit of family history research. AFFHO advocates on behalf of member organisations to address emerging challenges. Additionally, AFFHO seeks to raise awareness of the importance of family history and genealogy in preserving cultural heritage and understanding individual and collective identities.
