Bring your history to life

I'm a family history sleuth

My passion about the past has led to the discovery of my roots and l would love to help you find yours by solving your historical puzzles.  I can assure you that tracing your ancestors will be a fascinating personal journey and l relish the opportunity of being a part of that journey.  I provide a professional family history research service to bring your ancestors back to life.

If you are intrigued about your ancestry but have never started the search, my services are available for hire.  Alternatively, if you have been a family history researcher for years but need a little help to find an elusive ancestor, set me a challenge. I conduct thorough, meticulous and reliable family history research.

Genealogy is the study of the past members of a family, with your pedigree being a single direct line backward from yourself.  Family History is the means of bringing genealogy alive.  Family History develops this list of names to discover when, where and how your ancestors lived, worked and travelled and to reveal the triumphs and tragedies that occurred.  As a historian, l will then place the events within your ancestor’s story into the context of the social, economic and historical world in which they lived.

Each individual is a product of their ancestry.  Living in Australia, we descend from ancestors whose actions and decisions have determined where we are today.  The upheaval and challenges faced by our ancestors deserve acknowledgement, and family history research is vitally important to keep their memory alive.

The Adelaide Mine became the scene of the only notable mining tragedy in the Daylesford district. Robert H Robinson and Henry A Thompson were killed. John Hogan, my grandfather, was pivotal in recovering their bodies. Robinson is the centre figure at the windlass; John Hogan is on the right.

your family is your story

Have you conducted family history research and want to share your findings?  Do your relatives get bored with the endless streams of genealogical reports?  Would you prefer to share your research in story format, but are hesitant to put pen to paper?

I can bring your family history research to life by writing your story.  I will help you develop your list of names to discover when, where and how your ancestors lived, worked and travelled and to reveal the triumphs and tragedies that occurred.  l will produce a professional family history service by creating a social family history report, combining your ancestor’s genealogy with the economical and historical events that embraced their lives.

Everyone can write, but not everyone is a writer. 

What makes the difference is the keen eye for detail and beauty.

A Family Tree is also a unique present for your parent’s birthday, Christmas and / or wedding anniversary.

  Let me help you produce the gift of a lifetime.

There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children.
One of these is roots, the other, wings.

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Tracing your family history is a legacy for your children.
