WHO ARE WE?

The Co.As.It. Italian Family History Group (IFHG) was founded in 1999, and operates under the auspices of Co.As.It (Italian Association of Assistance), as per “Policy & Procedures” governance document found under ‘Membership’.

The IFHG is a non-profit genealogical group, consisting mostly of Italian-Australians, who are interested in sharing knowledge and experiences about their family history and Italian culture. We have over 600 people on our database, many of whom are actively engaged in their own family research.

The IFHG aims to assist its members by providing informative guest speaker events (approximately six times per year), a resource library for genealogical research material (temporarily in storage due to relocation of the Co.As.It. Library – please contact info@coasit.ifhg.org for information on accessibility), pooling members’ family history information and research experiences, and liaising with other similar genealogical groups.

Please note the IFHG does not currently have the capacity to assist individuals with their own Italian family genealogical research.

WHEN AND WHERE DOES THE GROUP MEET?

Our guest speaker events are held approximately six times per year in the main auditorium of the Italian Forum Cultural Centre (Ground level, 23 Norton Street, Leichhardt NSW 2040). The dates of these events depend on the availability of the venue.

In 2018, these events will be held at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm start. Members are encouraged to have a meal at one of the local restaurants in the Forum prior to the event. After the event, all members of the audience are invited to join the IFHG Committee at a local restaurant for coffee and/or other refreshments, at members’ own cost.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO PARTICIPATE?

There is an event attendance fee of $5.00 per person, which assists in the production of the event, including the cost of door prizes and a thank you gift for the guest speaker.

There is no longer an annual membership fee. If you would like to subscribe to the Italian Family History Group e-newsletter to keep you informed of upcoming events please go to:  http://www.coasit.ifhg.org/contact-us-2/ifhg-e-news-subscribe/.  There is no cost involved.
