Renew your CFHRI membership

Update: The renewal page is now closed as 2022-2023 renewals are now closed. Still, feel free to check further down this page for plenty of the events we have held over recent years even with Covid interrupting our normal in-person meetings.

It is time to renew your membership.  Details on how to do this can be found on the Membership Renewal Page.

Thanks to those that have renewed already!

The rooms are now fully functional and open for research on Thursdays & Saturdays.  We would love you to join us for the interesting General Meeting talks that are planned for upcoming months at the rooms, and, as some members enjoy the convenience of Zoom, these will be hybrid meetings.  Most interest groups are now meeting in the rooms with the Zoom option available. Trips and in-room training are back on again without the very restrictive Covid19 curtailments.

While Covid19 stopped activities in many societies, the events listed below give you an indication of some of the many great events we had in 2020 & 2021 despite Covid restrictions.  If this is what we could do under pressure, imagine Caloundra Family Histories’ future, now we are back at the rooms.  So check out our calendar and upcoming events.  There are lots of things on the agenda.
