Consultations with Judy Webster, professional genealogist

On my next trip to North Queensland I will again be available for 'one-on-one genealogy consultations'. Dates and times still available are:
  • Cairns (Qld), Mon. 22nd June 2015, 1pm or 2pm.
  • Innisfail (Qld), Sat. 20th or Wed. 24th June 2015, morning or early afternoon.

See 'How to book' (below).

What to expect

A friendly, informal session in which you can ask questions about any aspect of family history research, and note my suggestions for sources and strategies.  If I don't know the answer, I can probably direct you to someone who does.  My main area of expertise is Queensland (including unusual Archives records that are superb for solving problems), but I have also done personal research in NSW, Victoria and England (especially London and Yorkshire), and I have some knowledge for other States, counties and countries.  You are welcome to check my credentials.

What to bring


  • Notebook and pen.
  • List of specific questions, with names, dates and places.

Optional but advisable:

  • Pedigree chart (PDF file opens in a new window).
  • Family group sheets (PDF file opens in a new window) for people about whom you will ask.
  • Photocopies of relevant certificates.
  • Photocopies of other documents relevant to your questions.
  • Details of sources already used.

What it costs

For venues and dates listed on this page only (not elsewhere):  $20 (payable at the time of booking) for a 50-minute session for one or two people. This is a massive saving compared to my normal hourly rate as a professional genealogist.

Cancellation policy

If you cancel by phoning me no later than 6pm on the day before your time-slot, the booking fee will be refunded (less PayPal fees if applicable). There is no refund for late cancellations, late arrivals or 'no-shows'.

How to book

  1. Email me at Image of email address (address shown as an image) and say whether you want to book for:
    • Cairns on Monday 22 June 2015 (specify 1pm or 2pm)

    • Innisfail on Saturday 20 June or Wedneday 24 June 2015, morning or early afternoon. Tell me what times would suit you.

      If the time-slot you want is already booked, I can put you on a waiting list in case there is a cancellation, but I would need your landline and/or mobile phone number.

  2. I will explain how to pay by PayPal or by EFT or in-branch deposit to my bank account. Your booking will then be reserved for 48 hours while you arrange payment.

  3. When you have paid, I will confirm the booking and tell you the venue (a coffee shop) and how to contact me if you need to cancel.
