Shauna Hicks History Enterprises offers a range of services. Packages can be drawn up to meet your needs.

I am widely experienced in Australian and New Zealand research, plus England, Scotland and Ireland.

Research Services

Looking for a different birthday/anniversary present for someone? A four generation review of a person’s family tree is the perfect gift. Ten hours research with a digital report costs $750 plus additional expenses such as certificates or other documents. Larger reports can also be undertaken.

Perhaps you want only the paternal or maternal family line researched? Any variation can be discussed further.

Note that time taken and results achieved vary greatly depending on what information is already known, where the family came from and how well they are represented in surviving records.

Reports include written text, charts, images and are fully sourced. Simply print it out and place in a binder or folder and you have the perfect gift.

Talks and Workshops

As noted on the Events page, I present talks, seminars and workshops on a range of General, Australian and Overseas topics in person or virtual. A speaker fee of $150 per talk plus travel time and accommodation if necessary needs to be met by event organisers. Rates can be negotiated for multiple talks or extended workshops. I am prepared to travel interstate as long as associated airfares and accommodation are included in the arrangements which can be negotiated.

For a list of topics see the Events page or I will develop a talk/program to meet your society’s needs.



Family History ACT Writing your family history to publishing Sep 2021

  • Shauna Hicks is an excellent presenter and I learnt a lot as I’ve been game to start blogging;
  • Shauna’s session was the best in terms of the mix of information being imparted, slides, pace, discussion, etc

I sent my creative writing story …… to my cousin. …… I wanted you to know that I have actually done the corrections to my work and that it has had such an impact on one family member.  …… I wasn’t expecting that my story would get such an emotional response.  So Shauna, thank you for the opportunity.  And for my cousin …… she’s learnt a bit more about her family, who she never knew. And if you hadn’t held your creative writing class, I’d never have thought to tell some of the stories. So it’s been invaluable. (note personal details have been deleted) – Kerry B U3A 2018
