Australia: Rockhampton Family History Association

The Central Queensland Family History Association Inc. (CQFHA), was formed on the 21 May 1986 as the Central Queensland Genealogical Association, in Rockhampton Queensland Australia, as a non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit making association to accommodate the growing demand for genealogical records for family history research throughout the Central Queensland area. In late 1990 the name was changed to the current one to better represent our coverage.

The association has its own club rooms in Rockhampton and holds many family history records of the Central Queensland, and other, areas. We have researchers available who are willing to research your family if they came from this area. There is a charge for this service for non-members.

Monthly meetings are held at the Association's Library Room at 14 Highway St., North Rockhampton on the first Wednesday of each month (excepting January) commencing 7:30pm.

The Association publishes a quarterly journal, 'The C.Q. Genieologist", which is issued free of charge to members. Members are invited to advertise in the journal free of charge.

Country members are assisted with brief specific requests for information from our library holdings, or with advice on how to proceed with their research in more difficult situations.

A constantly growing library of research material, with an extensive microfiche collection as well as a comprehensive list of paper based records, including the latest British I.G.I., Civil Registration Indexes, British 1881 Census, Shipping lists, Gazetteers, G.R.D., Almanacs etc., and receives journals from many Genealogical and Family History Societies throughout Australasia, England, Ireland and Scotland.

The Central Queensland Family History Association Inc. is a member organisation of both the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations and the Federation of Family History Societies in the U.K.
