Research services

Wherever possible, a personal visit to our Resource Centre is recommended as the best way to further your research. However, we can undertake research in our collections for members or non-members who want experienced researchers to do the work for them. The research can cover small or large tasks. GSQ Single or Joint financial members, living more than 100km from the Resource Centre at 25 Stackpole Street, Wishart 4122, are entitled to additional benefits. Please contact the Research Convenor at with your requirements to ascertain your eligibility.

All research is undertaken by a small team of honorary Research Officers ― experienced members who volunteer their time, drawing on both their knowledge of genealogy and our collections to assist with research enquiries.

GSQ contains many indexes, documents, books and finding aids, mostly related to Queensland and other states in Australia. We also have access to overseas countries data.

The more information you can supply the better the chance of a positive result. All research enquiries must be on the online form.
