'Lost or Found'

Perhaps you just want to find out more details about someone in your family history, with some forensic sifting through records, or want to put together a personal story about someone special. I can look for the information that you need and write it in the style you need. The time needed will determine your costs.

General Research Package

If you have a specific project that requires the gathering of information - known or undiscovered - then the costs detailed above for 'The Organiser Plus' will apply. This information will be collated for you as required. If you want the information to be written up to a professional standard, then time specific to this will be charged at $50 per hour​, reflecting the higher level of expertise needed.


Consultancy projects will be negotiated with you or your organisation to the extent and budget required, and will attract the $50 per hour fee related to more complex work. In some cases work will be carried out at your premises, or off-site as required. A written agreement will be required for these projects.
