Wherever possible, a visit to our Society is recommended as the best way to further your research.
Requests for research are undertaken by a small team of Research Officers ― members who volunteer their time, drawing on both their knowledge of genealogy and of our collections to assist with research enquiries.
CFHRG contains many indexes, documents, books and finding aids, mostly related to Queensland and other states in Australia. We also have access to overseas countries data.
Research is performed as below:
Research conducted at the CFHRG Library Cost: $25 for a the first 2 hours of research and $20 per hour for each subsequent hour or part thereof.
The more information you can supply the better the chance of a positive result. All research enquiries must be on the downloadable form. The form can be filled in online, saved and emailed to CFHRG or printed out and mailed in to CFHRG Inc.
What you need to supply:
Exactly what you require checked in a legible manner, stating what research has been done to date and the sources already consulted.
Copies of certificates and documents should be attached where possible.
A brief pedigree chart showing the family being researched will always be of assistance.
Send no money with your enquiry – you will be advised of any fees payable. These must be paid in Australian currency cheque, cash, or EFTPOS.
What you will receive from us:
We will provide you with the result of the search including a list of the sources checked for you (either successfully or unsuccessfully).
