- was set up by sole trader Margaret Tucker Moxon in 2014 and specialises in family research for:
- those who don’t wish to spend their time in front of a computer
- seniors whose busy sons or daughters don’t get around to promised online research
- people wanting to confirm the truth or not of family stories
- writing up a short family history or researching an individual ancestor
Skills and experience
Margaret’s working background was in librarianship, community development and social policy in government. Much of her later career was with disability and seniors’ policy and information technology. Her formal qualifications include a degree, four vocational certificates, a diploma and two post-graduate certificates in:
- information technology
- family history
- Arts/social welfare
- housing policy and management, and
- human resources
Her genealogy and family history skills were built on these foundations, and were developed through studies in English genealogy: Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Ltd, some short courses in Australian family history, seminars and through membership of family history and genealogical associations.
Margaret also graduated with a Diploma of Family History offered by the University of Tasmania in December 2017.
Margaret now has over 12 years experience with genealogy using advanced computer skills, visiting archives, facilitating special interest groups and reading widely.
Apart from family history research, Margaret was instrumental in establishing Parramatta Computer Pals for Seniors in 2006-7, and was the volunteer inaugural webmaster and newsletter editor and now a life member. She enjoys travelling and meeting cousins and other members of her husband’s one-name Moxon Society.
