Consultations with Judy Webster, professional genealogist

On my next trip to North Queensland I will again be available for 'one-on-one genealogy consultations' at Innisfail.

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

Essential:

  • Notebook and pen.
  • List of concise, specific questions, with names, dates and places.
  • Photocopies of relevant certificates.
  • Photocopies of other documents relevant to your questions.

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.
  • 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 one-hour session for one or two people. This is a massive saving compared to my normal hourly rate ($60/hour) as a professional genealogist.

Cancellation policy

If you cancel by phoning me no later than 6pm on the day before your consultation, the booking fee will be refunded (less PayPal fees if applicable). There is no refund for late cancellations, late arrivals or 'no-shows'. You are welcome to check my credentials before you book.

How to book

  1. Email me at Image of email address (address shown as an image) and say whether you want a consultation at Innisfail on Monday 21 Sep, Tuesday 22 Sep or Friday 25 Sep 2015. I can only see one person per day, but you may choose a time in the morning or early afternoon.

  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 in Innisfail) and how to contact me if you need to cancel.
Other Suggestions

My other genealogy sites have more advice, and more names from records in archives.
