Research Service

Need some assistance with your research?  

QFHS has a helping hand if you are not making any headway and you feel stuck with your research.

Speak with our friendly and experienced library volunteers who can help you find and use resources in our library.

Join one of the Special Interest Groups  for discussion and guidance by members with similar research interests.


If you have a quick family history or genealogy question, email AskQFHS with your query and our panel of experienced members will provide some advice. Examples include:

  • get recommendations for where to find records
  • better understand an unfamiliar term or phrase in a record
  • find out how to use a particular website or resource
  • and more…

Look-up Service

This members-only service asks us to look up a particular item for you at QFHS, expected to take no more than 20 minutes.

For example, a look-up may be to find a specific person in one of the English censuses or to find a specific person in one of the Queensland Commonwealth Electoral Rolls.

You will need to log in to submit a look-up request here.

Extended Research

Our capable team of volunteer researchers is available to help members and non-members with extended research, for a fee.

Members who live further than 50 km from the Brisbane GPO can receive two hours free research each year. Brisbane members who cannot attend the QFHS Family History Research Centre for reasons of disability or similar should contact the Secretary to discuss their needs.
