Quick look-up service

Our staff and wonderful volunteers are taking a well-earned break over the festive season. You are welcome to submit requests as per the instructions below and they will be placed in a queue. Responses will begin again from late January 2022.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas!

Need something checked in the collections but can’t come in?

Current members (including those living in Sydney) can request a quick look-up of an item held in our collections by downloading and completing this form and emailing it to us.

This service can be very helpful if you need a reference confirmed, saw a new accession in a recent journal you’d like checked or would like us to look up an entry in a cemetery record or parish register for you.

In addition to this free look-up service, members who live in the country, interstate or overseas are able to request up to three hours free research within our collection each year as a benefit of their membership. Additional work may be undertaken for them at the discretion of our volunteer Research Officers, and a fee may be charged for this. 

Further details of this research service will be found in the Member Area.
