The Society will also undertake local research for those who are unable to visit the library in person. Contact the address above to request research from one of our volunteer researchers and remember to always enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope with any correspondence to the Society. Fees are charged at thirty dollars ($30) for up to two hours of research - plus costs for photocopying, microfilm hire, printouts etc. Payment must be included with the research request. All research is done by volunteers and any funds raised assist the society to purchase new records for the benefit of all researchers.
The Research Process Explained:
Once payment is received
we will investigate either your specific queries or start at the beginning and
check all records we use. We hold lots of records pertaining to
We do many hours of ongoing research and mail the information to you. If there is an excessive amount of photocopying we may request a further payment to cover this as we have to pay the library for the use of their photocopier. However, if we are unable to find anything or very little we will refund all or some of your payment.
We then keep the information we have researched for you on file and it is then available to future people who may be researching your names too. Many times we have put people in touch with other researchers of their own trees.
Our research people do so much more work than you would realise to help you in your search for information. Please feel confident that everything possible is done by our volunteers to supply you with any relevant information we may have in our library.
The funds raised from
your payments for our research, assist us with obtaining further records and to
