e-Bulletin

The FAHS e-Bulletin is sent out by e-mail about every three weeks to historical societies within Australia, and provides recent information and notices of coming events within the history movement generally. The articles are relatively brief and usually relate to Australia, although occasional overseas articles are included.

The FAHS also publishes a Newsletter which focuses more on the activities of the FAHS and its constituent member societies.

If your historical society is not already our e-mail distribution list for the e-Bulletin and the Newsletter, and would like to be on it, please let us know by e-mail.
