Do you have ancestors from Busselton and surrounding districts?
Would you like to know more about them and their lives?
How about photos?
Newspaper articles?
Stories of the old schools they attended?

Our volunteer researchers will be happy to delve into our records to see what we can find, whether these be photographs or historical documents that are relevant to your query.   A Research Request will cost $25, which will be due when the Research Team has reviewed your request and determined they can assist you.  As some requests will require substantially more effort, the Research team will contact you with the initial findings and then you can choose whether to continue with the research. Any additional research after the delivery of the initial findings will be charged at $20 per hour.


To submit a Research Request please use the Request Research button on this page and provide as many details as you can, including what you have already discovered in your own research so that we do not duplicate effort.  On receipt of these details our volunteer researchers will assess your request and they will contact you to confirm the request details and provide information on how to make your payment.  The team will only begin to work their magic once your payment is received.
