The FHWA Family Tree Maker (FTM) User Group is open to all FHWA members, whether users of the FTM genealogy software program or not.  Members of the public are able to attend meetings, but are encouraged to become a member of FHWA.  The group was officially recognised by FamilyHistoryWA on 28 October 2019.

The group Convenor is Chris Harris, the Secretary is Terri Usher, the Treasurer is Margaret Pike and the Social Media Officer is Leisa Byrne.
Email us at and remember to join us on Facebook.
Our meetings are held monthly (11 times a year), are all online and the dates up to 15 months ahead are listed in the What's On Calendar.  In addition to the normal monthly user group meeting, each quarter a Beginners session is scheduled, if there is a need for it.

FHWA members can purchase a 12 month subscription to FTM User Group Meetings.

You will still need to book for the meetings, but the ticket price will be discounted 100% at check out and your credit card can stay in your wallet!!  The subscription is for 12 months from the date you sign up and the extra benefit is that, if the ticket price rises, your price has been fixed until your subscription expires.

Here is a brief (and very amateur) video showing how to subscribe!

Our Group maintains a library of information and "how to" documents for your reference that members are welcome to browse at their leisure.
