Welcome to Western Victorian Association of Historical Societies (WVAHS) Online!

The Western Victorian Association of Historical Societies Inc. has a membership of approximately 50 groups from Swan Hill (in the north of the State) to Warrnambool on the southern coast.

The member groups have a wide range of interests – all with a historical emphasis. These include:

● Collecting artefacts to house in Museums
● Collecting paper records
● Collecting photographs
● Some are combined Historical and Genealogical Groups

Most of the groups are willing to allow the public to carry out research or will do so for them at a fee.
The Association allows interchange of ideas and information between groups, relating to such things as:

● Fund Raising
● Storage Methods
● Attracting members
● Insurance Issues
● Grants Available
● Charges made
● Guest speakers
● Burglary prevention

A quarterly newsletter (The Western Historian) is also available.
