Armidale Family History Group Inc., offers a Research Service to people
who are unable to visit Armidale. The initial cost is $35.00
Australian per enquiry payable in advance by cheque or money
order; this includes return postage. For this fee we will research
one surname in the resources we hold in our Library.
and complete the attached form to tell us as concisely as possible,
exactly who it is you would like us to research. The completed
form, together with your
cheque or money order,
should then be posted to:
Armidale Family History Group,
P.O. Box 1378, Armidale
NSW 2350 Australia
If you have already obtained some
certificates, it would be helpful if you could provide us with dates and
places of births, deaths or marriages, and any relevant names from the
certificates. Please provide as much of this information as possible so
that we can be sure we are searching for the correct person.
Depending on the request, volunteers
will search a variety of resources in our Library which include:
Armidale Cemetery transcriptions, family and local histories, "Dust of
Ages" (journal of Armidale Family History Group Inc.), Armidale and
District Historical Society Journals and Armidale Family History Group's
personality and place files.
We include up to
five (5) pages of photocopying in our $35 charge, but if more material
is found, each additional A4 page will be charged at a rate of 20 cents
but we will not exceed an additional $5 without your authorization.
All research requests are handled in
the order in which they are received. Please be patient as our Research
Service depends on the goodwill of our volunteers and their available
free time. We regret that we are unable to undertake any requests
falling outside the above guidelines.

There is no fee for this service but please supply a stamped addressed
