VAFHO’s first Treasure Chest held in 2006 was envisaged as a market place for ideas, for the sharing of information and for bringing together in one place Family and Local History Groups from throughout the State – a place where people could come and search for their treasure. Over 120 stalls were set up with displays dotted around. Speakers covered interesting topics and over 500 people came to look, talk, acquire and enjoy.
VAFHO plans to present this event between State Conferences in the future.
