I am a genealogist and record agent located in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.  As well as researching in Ballarat and the surrounding area, I research in Melbourne and in Canberra.

Using a range of materials, both paper and digital, I provide relevant, well-sourced information that answers clients' questions in a professional, cost-effective and timely manner.

I have a Graduate Diploma in Local and Applied History (UNE, 1999) and a Master of Letters (Australian History) (UNE, 2001).

I deal directly with family history researchers, and I have also provided professional services through ancestry.com’s ExpertConnect service, completing 96 projects, with an average 5-star rating, the maximum.

I am a member of the Australasian Association of Genealogists and Record Agents. I am also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and hence I am bound by its Code of Ethics
