  • Can You Help? (1988-2020) – entries from the West Australian newspaper
  • Index of Meads Funeral Directors’ records

Coming soon

  • Perth Technical School (1926-1931)
  • Plantagenet Marriages (1931-1965)
  • Passenger Arrivals into Western Australia – additional to those already on the FHWA website
  • Cemeteries

The Projects Team is also converting the data, previously provided on microfiche and CD by FHWA, to digital format.

Various other projects are also being undertaken, including those by FHWA Special Interest Groups and Affiliated Societies.

We always need Volunteers and with many of our projects you can work from home,  and don’t always need a computer.  The Projects Team also welcomes suggestions for future projects.
