We work with you

Ancestor Discovery offers a range of genealogy services and products to suit your needs. 

Family history research

Finding ancestral families has become an international pastime and Ancestor Discovery can help you join this exciting venture.

Our comprehensive research process will provide you with quality research reports, all documents (with full citations), a GEDCOM for use in any genealogy software program, pedigree/family tree charts and an analysis of your DNA results related to your research goal (if applicable).

Genealogy services

If you are looking for your family story to be told in a quality professional publication, then ask us for a quote.

We also offer record lookups in online subscription services (eg Ancestry, FindMyPast) as well as numerous other repositories and web sites. Lookups can be for the most common records, eg births, deaths, marriages, census, immigration.

A copying and transcription service is also provided.

Specialist areas

Research areas include (but are not limited to:

Australia, New Zealand, British India (to 1947), United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Europe (international agents used for research in local archives) and the United States of America (research conducted using online resources only - until further notice).

DNA is now an important part of family history research. By confirming relationships, you may be able to break through brick walls and find living relatives. Ancestor Discovery can help you with identifying matches and perhaps extending your ancestry another generation or two. 

Personalised research plans

You have done some research and really want to continue but need guidance on the best way. 

We can help you with a research plan which confirms what you have found and identifies record collections and sources for further investigation.

Ongoing support and mentoring is also available if required.

Restoration & conservation

Many of us have wonderful old photographs that have been damaged or incorrectly stored. We can digitally restore damaged photos and enhance faded images to bring them back to life.

If you want to preserve those images for future generations, ask us about our archival storage solutions.

Web site development

Ask us to help create your very own family history web site using WordPress or The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding (TNG), designed to be easily viewed and shared with family and friends.

We can help guide your online content and promote the site to attract visitors and previously unknown relatives. Technical support is also available if required.
