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.
