History West

History at your service

Keeping in touch with members is of paramount importance. We like sharing our activities and achievements with everyone.

Two key regular publications are the newsletter History West, published monthly throughout most of each year, and the annual journal Early Days.

Wondering what's on at the next monthly general meeting? History West tells you about the guest speaker, as well as offering news and views given by our contributors. Some are specialists. Others see heritage all over . . . in a lace tablecloth, in a letter from a great-grandmother, in drawings of a three-masted ship.

The newsletter also has book reviews, highlighting works covering local history, and reports on tours and events. Tours include Perth locations and regional areas. Events include quiz nights and morning teas where book sales, and lively talks by their authors, are on the menu.

News from regional and regional affiliated historical societies is also summarised in History West.

We know how to socialise

Wine, nibbles and soft drinks are served before the monthly general meetings. Please arrive by 5.30pm for a chance to get to know us in a relaxed atmosphere.

The formal part of the evening and the presentation of a research paper with accompanying illustrations, starts at 6pm.
