Our Genealogist, Helen Brahms has over 30 years experience researching genealogy records and helping others to start their family tree research or do the research for them. Her personal tree has over 7,600 people. Helen has become an expert in finding the thread in the haystack of needles.
Born and raised in New Zealand, Helen’s journey into Genealogy began in her teen years when her paternal grandfather researched his father’s side of the family. A few years later, her mother took over the research and expanded it to include both her parents ancestral lines along with her husband’s family. Helen loved joining her mother with researching the family tree and learning more about where she came from. It didn’t take long for her curiosity to turn into a passion. A few years later Helen, took over the research of her family tree and continued the research and added her husband’s family to her research adding to the records her Mother-In-Law had already spent years collecting. Very soon she was helping others with their research or doing the research for them.
It can be long slow process but with patience and persistence your family tree will grow. We provide guidance to start your tree, ways around stumbling blocks and for those who are interested but don’t have the time, we can do the research for you.
