For information on past Congresses, the AFFHO website has details
please keep me informed.
I am disappointed that I have not received an e-mail about this congress, having attended both the Canberra & the Adelaide congress. I expressed my wish to be kept informed but I have heard nothing. It’s only because I am currently with a cousin discussing our family tree that I remembered the congress and went to search for it.
Please keep me informed of the Congress details plus registration.
