Countrywide Societies

The Australasian Association of Genealogists and Record Agents

The association was founded in 1977. Their aim is to compile a list of genealogists and record agents.  They then pass this information to people who want to have genealogical research undertaken professionally.

  • Australian Capital Territory (ACT)
  • New South Wales (NSW)
  • Norfolk Island (NFI)
  • Northern Territory (NT)
  • Queensland (QLD)
  • South Australia (SA)
  • Tasmania (TAS)
  • Victoria (VIC)
  • Western Australia (WA)

It also covers all regions of New Zealand.


Federation of Family History Societies

The association was founded in 1978 to assist and coordinate the work of associations in Australia and New Zealand.
