VAFHO – what we’re about

It has been great receiving your encouragement and thanks for the role we’re playing with the Registry of Victorian BDMs on your behalf – but that’s what VAFHO (Victorian Association of Family History Organisations) is all about.


  • To promote and encourage the study of genealogy, heraldry, family history and allied subjects throughout Victoria.
  • To promote and arrange easier public access to public records and record repositories throughout Victoria.
  • To promote and encourage the preservation of records for family history research.
  • To represent views of family history organisations to Victorian local and and State government.
  • To organise and co-ordinate the conduct of regular family history events in Victoria.
  • To keep groups informed with topical information.
  • To act on feedback to give a collective voice on matters of importance.
  • To support National Family History Month.
