History Queensland Inc. was established on 15 July 1995. Local and Family History Societies operate throughout Queensland because of the dedication of thousands of members who give their services voluntarily to promote their common interest. The aim of HQ is to act as an umbrella group that gives all such societies a united voice in promoting the interests of family historians, local historians and genealogists.

HQ publishes a quarterly newsletter, coordinates a biennial fair for members to showcase themselves, and offers member organisations specialised insurance including Public Liability coverage.

The family and local history and small museum community in Queensland is very active, but advertising those activities to the other HQ organisations and the wider interested community has never been easy.  There are over 110 member organisations throughout Queensland and we will post activities these groups wish us to advertise.

The facebook site should help you advertise your events to not only HQ members, but also a wider audience. You could:

  • Attract non members to open meetings, including those travelling within the State
  • Let us know about new publications, data bases
  • Seek information about mystery photos
  • Advertise family reunions in your area

You don’t have to subscribe to facebook to read these posts, but if you wish to comment or have advice of postings dropped into your mail box – then you will need to subscribe and like the page.


 The HQ website will be the Go To site as the official face of all aspects of HQ.
