Welcome! I'm Megan and I'm here to help family tree climbers beat the "I'm too busy" blues. That's why I started Family Tree Time, especially after I didn't take my own advice years ago - I never visited that old aunt, who took many family stories to the grave.
As a Freelance Researcher on episodes of 'Who Do You Think You Are?' (Aust) and as a nationally published writer (eg Inside History magazine), I know how to work fast yet smart, whether you want me to

A big thanks to Dorothy Wickham, Jan Parker, and the rest of the team behind "Under the Southern Cross: A Goldfields Experience" aka the 8th VAFHO Family History State Conference, hosted on the first weekend in May by the Victorian Interpretive Projects Inc. I spent a fabulous weekend in Ballarat attending the conference Welcome and seminars, and I was delighted to speak on the panel at the Plenary Session on Sunday afternoon, addressing the topic "Private Lives, Public Images: Family History - Is it JUST for the family or for a broader audience?". Others on the panel included Kate Prinsley, the Executive Officer from the RHSV (which is a great, often "hidden" resource), and Dr Val Noone. Some interesting points were raised on this diverse panel,and I'm told a podcast should be available soon. The conference was well worth attending and I'm looking forward to the next one already!

"We recently received a copy of "How To Get More Family Tree Time" by Megan Gibson. Megan is a freelance researcher who has done work for private clients, as well as researching several episodes of the Australian series 'Who Do You Think You Are?' - no doubt her work in TV production led to many of the tips in this book!The tips - and there are 50 of them - are divided into well organised chapters that make the book a great reference tool as well as a pleasing cover-to-cover read. Each suggested time-saving maxim is supported by practical, personal experience from Megan, so you get to see how these things translate into the real world.But it's not just for the time poor genealogist. This book is also great for beginners as it's packed with useful information for those starting out. So if this sounds like a book you or someone you know would be interested in - Christmas is just around the corner..." Book Review, ancestry.com.au e-newsletter, Nov 2010
