Commissioned Research

The Kiama Family History Centre offers a commissioned research service for those family historians who are unable to visit the Centre personally. Our extensive genealogical collection is not confined to the Kiama area, but covers all states in Australia as well as the UK, USA, New Zealand, Canada and parts of Europe. For the prescribed fee, our qualified historian will examine primary and secondary sources held in our vast collection of records on your behalf. These records include, but are not restricted to parish registers, legal records, newspapers, immigration records, convict records, books and manuscripts. Once research has been completed, our historian will prepare a written report of their findings including copies of relevant documents located.

Our current fee for commissioned research is $120.00 (minimum 3 hours hire at $40 per hour). Please note this charge is subject to change.
