Want to do your family tree but don't know where to start?

"The home visit was fabulous! The three of us could relax in the comfort of home and share Megan's attention without concern about monopolising her. The information we received and the progress made in that environment was inspiring. Itching to get her back!" Fiona, ACT, home visit, Nov 2013"It was great to draw on Megan's expertise in a small group. It meant that the information could be tailormade to my searches. It was like having my own personal consultant!" Sue, ACT, home visit, Nov 2013

AvailabilityAs I am only able to work part-time (due to health and carer responsibilities), my main focus is on writing further books and articles, and doing the odd talk at genealogy and history events. I will only be taking on a minimum amount of client research until further notice. However, if you do require a researcher (family history, community history etc), please send me an email outlining what you require, and I will let you know if I am in a position to be able to take on your project or not.
Social MediaI don't operate on social media at present, as Family Tree Time or as Megan Gibson. As a small part-time business, the main focus of my limited hours has to be completing writing and research for my clients.
To me, posting irregularly on social media is worse than not posting at all. I am just being realistic and honest about my resources, I am not (yet!) a big organisation with a whole Social Media Department!
There's plenty of people in the genealogy and family history world already tweeting and blogging, so there's no shortage of news and information out there for family tree fans. (Google my friends at Inside History magazine for a start.)
"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
