Research For Me

Do you want to learn about your family history but don't really want to do the research? Then we can help you. 

Even though we are based in New Zealand we have experience tracing family history in Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the USA (and a few other places too).

We'll often get asked how much does it cost to trace my family tree? Well that's a bit like the old adage of "how long is a piece of string?" Until we have had a chat about your family and what you know we can't really tell you. Even when we have had a chat it depends on how in depth you want to go. So to start you off we offer a free 15 minute consultation to discuss what you know and what you are wanting to find out. 

A great way to prepare for a consultation is to have a look at our Starting Your Family History page. 

During the consultation we'll be asking questions like:

  • Do you want to trace all your ancestors or just one particular line? For example you might just want to trace your surname line (paternal family tree) or you might be really interested in the women in your family history.
  • Do you want to concentrate on getting back a set number of generations? Maybe you just want to find out the names of your great grandparents or your great great grandparents. 
  • What do you know and how much information do you already have? If you already have family birth, marriage and death certificates then this can make your research easier. 

At then end of the consultation you will be able to make a decision on what you are wanting to achieve and we can start the family history research for you.

Can you help me find someone?

We can help you to make contact with family members that your family lost touch with years ago and to find other descendants who may have inherited family information or memorabilia?

We have experience with finding living people as part of our work as Heir Hunter's (Yes, just like the TV show).  Contact Us to discuss your next step.
