Research Assistance

We regret that owing to the pressure from other activities and the fact that only one or two of our members are in a position to do research we cannot in future assist family historians with their enquiries.

It is suggested that such enquiries be directed to any genealogical society listed in the telephone book which should be able to refer you to a person who does such research for an appropriate fee.
