Genealogical, Archival & Historical Researcher
With over 20 years of enthusiastic experience.
I love connecting people to their past.
I can help with:
Tracing ancestry (this can be personal, or as a wonderful heirloom gift to commemorate milestone events such as a birth, or a wedding anniversary)
Creating family tree databases (using computer software)
DNA research (incl. mirror trees, contacting relatives)
Publishing records to online genealogical-based websites
Creating computer gedcom (universal) files (with these you can upload them to other programmes or websites, share them with relatives for them to upload, etc)
Collating family history stories
Attaching photographs and documents (electronically) to databases
Ordering documents (incl. birth, death, marriage)
Producing ancestral and descendant pedigree reports
Creating printable trees
Computerising family history information
Producing oral history questionnaires (which you can then use to gather information from living relatives)
Small museum and historical society databases & projects
Fact-checking of family rumours & legends
Preparing trees for family reunions
Undertake or help with One-Name Studies, and One-Place Studies
Each project is individually tailored, and flat rates are offered in 10-hour blocks, plus expenses (if any). Smaller or significantly larger projects (such as those for museums) quoted upon request.
Complete discretion assured.
Please contact me for fee information.
Terms & Conditions
I pride myself on working quickly and efficiently on each project I undertake, and because I love genealogy so much I often go 'above & beyond', so you get extremely good value for your money.
Because there is a lot of time & effort involved in each unique project, I ask for a 50% deposit before beginning the research; and each subsequent 10-hour block paid in advance thereafter.
If any complete hours, paid for in advance, are not used during the project, then the balance may then be refunded.
As I don't believe that one's family history should be beyond the budget of the average person, I try and keep my rates reasonable.
All relevant correspondence will be considered as part of a contract between both parties to undertake any agreed-upon work.
While all care is taken, there are no guarantees that information can or will be found for any research project undertaken; or that 100% degree of accuracy can be assured.
All projects are undertaken in good faith.
Pricing and terms & conditions are subject to change.
Payments can currently be made in the following ways:
INTERNET BANKING TRANSFER (within NZ), STEEM/SBD or CREDIT CARD
(other options may become available upon demand)
