Australian History Detectives

I am a family history researcher based in Brisbane.

I provide research services, from the search and retrieval of records from on-line providers, and documents sourced from local archives. 

I will search immigration passenger lists, convict records, hospital and military records, land titles and probate files. I have experience in Australian (South Australia and other states) and UK research.

Reports will include details of all sources searched, including those where nothing helpful was found. Charges are for time taken. It takes just as long to search a source and find nothing, as it does to search it and find useful references.


Fees are Australian $45.00 per hour and cover research time, collating the information obtained and reporting to you. Disbursements such as photocopying, certificates, phone calls other than local, etc. are charged at cost.
