Research Enquiries

As we have very limited facilities for personal research please direct your research enquiry to us by mail or email. All members of our not-for-profit organisation are volunteers and all fees contribute directly to maintaining our collections and supporting the work we do.

Research enquiry fees

  • Basic enquiry  – No charge *
  • Detailed enquiry  – $50.00 **
  • Additional research (per hour)  – $30.00

Note: Postage costs are additional to the above fees

* A basic enquiry search will help ascertain if we hold information that will assist you. EDHS will indicate this, or will try to refer you to a more appropriate source.
**A detailed enquiry search will include an extensive examination of relevant records and includes up to 1.5 hours research and postage of up to 5 x A4 pages. If additional research time is required you will be advised.
