Make a research request
Our staff and wonderful volunteers are taking a well-earned break over the festive season. You are welcome to submit requests as per the instructions below and they will be placed in a queue. Responses will begin again from late January 2022.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas!
Our volunteer Research Officers can undertake research for non-members. An initial fee of $40 is required in advance through the online shop. If your request requires additional research a quote will be provided.
You should clearly set out your research request in an email or letter and also tell us what you have already tried so that we don’t spend time repeating work you have done yourself.
We need, as a minimum, the following information:your full name
your research request - be precise and note what you have already tried
We will only undertake research within our own collections. If you require research to be done at a library or archive outside of the SAG we will refer you to a list of professional genealogists who have completed the Society’s Diploma course and who are available for private commissions. That list can be found here.
