 The Internet Family History Association of Australia (IFHAA) was founded on 1 January 1999 and is hosted on HistoryAustralia. The IFHAA pages are a collection of articles and other information submitted by members and cover many aspects of Australian family history research. Also included in the IFHAA pages are details, and links to, useful family history resources on the web.

The IFHAA pages are being progressively rewritten and reloaded after having been taken off-line due to recent spamming and hacker activities. As a result some of the pages may not be immediately available. If you receive an email purporting to be from HistoryAustralia or the IFHAA and asking you to click on a link to confirm your registration details please do not click the link as it will only verify to spammers that your email address is a valid one. Delete the email immediately. The only verification emails we would send is if you submitted a page for inclusion on this site. This would include the details that you submitted and advising of a non-public link to the page. Once you have confirmed the details are correct the page or information would then be linked to the site for public access.
