About Us


“ A place to discover your past, your future your story”


Our mission is to assist families to find out all they can about their family history, which reflects a true and accurate picture of their past to present time.


MDFHSinc is a family history centre in the Wide Bay and we believe your story is not just a story of dates and places. It is the pieces of information that are wound together to form the whole story.

Our focus is family history and as we believe the history of your ancestor’s everyday lives builds the whole picture we have developed a computer program to assist us in this research.

The Big M documents and digitises our records and photos collectively to enable you to build your family history through BDM, photos, housing and business records school and military records, and threads of information available to us.

This program has been tailored specifically to our needs so as your story builds in our system we can gather all the information in one place so when you visit we realise time is precious and we are minimising research time for you to maximise the local experience.
