The Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations (AFFHO) has once again presented the Society’s journal Footsteps with the coveted 2014 Nick Vine Hall Award for the best family history journal/newsletter in Australia and New Zealand. Congratulations to all involved.
Footsteps is the quarterly journal of the Society and is sent to members in February, May, August and November of each year. This journal contains full details of Society activities, coupled with research articles and stories with a family history focus.
The Society is providing copies of its last four journals on the website as a means of further communicating with its members, and other people, who may have a family history interest in the Port Macquarie District.
Each journal will appear on this website approximately one month after its publication. Due to their size (1 to 3 megabytes each), download of these journals may take a few minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
Prefer reading a hard copy? An annual subscription costs $12.00. To order and pay online, please email our Secretary at: firstname.lastname@example.org for direct debit reference details or mail your details with your cheque to:
The Secretary, PMDFHS, PO Box 1359, Port Macquarie NSW 2444
Please note that the contents of the journal is copyright to the Port Macquarie & Districts Family History Society, Inc. Any requests to use material from the journal should be directed to the Secretary.

Expressions of Interest Sought
The position of Editor of our flagship journal Footsteps will soon be vacant with our current editor recently moving from the district.
Members of the Society are now invited to contact myself or other committee members with the view to taking over this very important and extremely interesting role. No previous editing or writing experience is necessary because each edition is based around a blank template which just needs to be checked for changes and then filled in each quarter. The most difficult part of the editorship involves encouraging other Society members to write short stories or pieces about their family history experiences. Full training and assistance will be provided.
Please consider taking on this vital role in your Society as the reward will be the satisfaction of being an important member of a very friendly family history society that is playing an useful part in helping others with their research.
Rex Toomey, President
