Our Privacy Policy

The Tasmanian Family History Society Inc. is a non-profit organisation administered by volunteers.

The Aims of the Society are to promote the study and research of genealogy and family history through education, preservation and transcribing of relevant records, the writing and publishing of appropriate literature and the provision as a public service of reference libraries and associated learning opportunities.

The Society receives no recurrent funding from any Government instrumentality and to support its aims, members of the Society collect, collate and index genealogical information from a wide variety of sources in the public domain such as newspapers, government gazettes, church records, archive offices, and cemetery headstones. The collected information is then published and sold to other like societies, libraries and individual researchers and historians.

The Society also collects personal details from its membership, which are used for administrative purposes, to verify membership, and to disseminate genealogical information by means of the Society‘s quarterly journal. If the requested personal information is not supplied, membership of the Society may be denied. Personal information will not be published without permission.

Where the Members‘ Research Interests section of the membership form has been completed and publication has been authorised by the member, then this information together with the contact details for the member, may, at the discretion of the Society be published.

A copy of the personal information of an individual, collected and held by the Society, may only be accessed by the individual concerned. Any request for access must be in writing and addressed to the State Secretary at PO Box 326, Rosny Park, Tas. 7018, or by email to secretary@tasfhs.org.
