Copying, Research & Other Genealogy Services

This site uses terms that appear in historical records. No offence is intended.

I've spent over 35 years, and thousands of dollars, learning about research techniques and historical records. A huge amount of advice is on this site and my other genealogy sites (see below), but I can no longer give free advice by email. Genealogical services are my business, and I charge fees for my time.

My professional services, for which fees apply:

1.  Copying Service for original historical records that I've indexed (the 70,000 names on my Web site, which include local, interstate and overseas residents mentioned in records held in Queensland and other Australian States).  On each page with names, read the explanation at the top, then the section (near the end of that page) marked 'Copying Service' or similar, and carefully follow the instructions there.  I cannot do anything until you follow those instructions.

2.  Apart from those 'copying' jobs, the only requests that I would now consider are:

  • Legal work for solicitors or State Trustees, tracing Queensland beneficiaries of deceased estates. Ask me for a request form.

  • (Updated) Searches for these in Queensland, *if* you know an approximate year: wills; intestacies; inquests; divorces; prison records; Dunwich records. A deposit (minimum $30) must accompany all such requests.

  • Copying other records *if* you've identified (by using Queensland State Archives online catalogue) a specific item and its item ID number. A deposit (minimum $30) must accompany all such requests.

Free advice:

I'm now semi-retired, and I cannot give free advice by email, but you may find answers to your questions on this site or my other genealogy sites. Start with:

Other professional researchers:

I'm often asked to recommend other professional genealogists. It is my policy to do so only if I have personally used their services and found their work to be of a very high standard.
