 Volunteers Week 20-26 May

During Volunteers Week 20 - 26 May, we want to pay tribute to our mighty QFHS volunteers.  No matter the task or what time you are able to give, every contribution helps to keep the wheels turning.  Your work supports a dynamic, reputable organization which has recently emerged strongly from the trials of COVID, a move and an open BCC tender.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

As the Volunteer Coordinator I sincerely hope that your work at QFHS is meeting your expectations and enriching your relationship with the society.  If it is not – please don’t hesitate to contact me at volunteering@qfhs.org.au explaining your concern or to arrange a confidential chat about it.  Volunteering should be a two-way street – providing satisfaction and enjoyment for the volunteer as well as contributing to the continuance and growth of the society.

We Remember Them: wartime stories in our family trees


Women, some dressed in uniform, changing the tyre of a truck during World War Two, Queensland, 1939. The women were part of the Australian Military Women's Emergency Legion.

The We Remember Them project will gather stories from our members focusing on the wartime stories in their family trees.  A virtual Honour Board will be created on this website to display an image of the individual and a few vital statistics. Each image will be linked to the story of that person’s wartime experiences. Read More
