People involved in genealogy find they often share much in common, and members enjoy interacting with other like-minded sleuths!
Membership fees assist us to expand our library holdings through the purchase of interesting and useful resources which are available to all members. They also allow us to subscribe to internet genealogy sites and provide a facility for members and visitors to meet.
At our workshops and seminars you will find friendly experts to help you further your research. They can guide you to appropriate resources - both printed and on the internet. The piece of information you have been searching for - the "missing link" - is often discovered through interacting with other members who may have been there before.
Membership to CFHRI gives reciprocal membership with Genealogy Sunshine Coast and Cooroy-Noosa Family History Society. Members must show their current membership card when visiting these libraries.
We are also Affiliate Members of the Genealogy Society of Queensland and Country Members of Queensland Family History Society, both in Brisbane. Members can borrow the membership card to visit these resource centres at a time that suits them.
If you are interested in becoming a member of CFHRI, a Membership Application Form can be downloaded here.
We run a 100 Club as a fund-raising initiative for our group. For the minimal cost of $20 p.a. members go into the three draws held at every general meeting. They do not need to be at the meeting to be in the draw and if they are a winner, they can recoup their money very quickly from one draw. We also welcome the participation of members’ spouses, family members, even ancestors!
initiative is Journal
members can sponsor a journal from another family history group
for a small fee and when that journal arrives, the sponsoring
member has first access to the journal. Some members sponsor
journals from their area of research interest, others are happy to
support the group by sponsoring one of the journals we exchange
with other family history groups. The cost is either $7
(Australian journal) or $10 (NZ journal) or $14 (overseas
journal). Anyone wanting to start sponsoring a journal should
enter the name of the journal or region of interest on the
membership form. The Librarian will be in touch to discuss
