Are you hitting a brick wall in your family history research and lost an ancestor? They may have emigrated to New Zealand to start a new life. That's where I can possibly help.

Family History Charts
I construct a variety of family history charts and reports for occasions such as family reunions, or gifts.

Oral History
All to often we forget that our parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents hold vast amounts of knowledge about our families. Much of this oral history is gone forever when they have died. We offer to help capture this knowledge. Email me know about how I can help.
