The Australian Hellenic Historical Society (A.H.H.S.) was formed in 1984 by a group of dedicated people, predominantly Greek-Australians, interested in recording and preserving the history of the Greeks in Australia.
Very active in the first decade and a half of its existence, the Society amassed a vast amount of research material, artefacts, and realia.
The Society has always endeavoured to establish a MUSEUM and Resource Centre.
In more recent times it has forged a powerful link to the Kytherian Library and Research Centre, First Floor, 28 King Street, Rockdale, 2216.
The A.H.H.S. would like to hear from anyone who has material they would like to donate, submit, or have digitalised, particularly material that predates1940.
Also any volunteer's who would like to help collate and order the A.H.H.S. "collection" would be most welcome.
Active members in the post-2010 era include Tas Psarakis, Petro Cassimaty, and George Venardos.
Contact can be made via the Secretary, Mr Tas Psarakis, here
