Need the services of a historian?
The members of PHAQ have a wide range of skills to offer. The consultants register lists some (but not all) of our members who are available to undertake historical research, commissions or contracts.
Work that relies on an input of historical information is best placed in the hands of an accredited professional historian.
Every person and every organisation has a story to tell. A recorded history is a tangible way of both preserving and sharing the story of your school, business, company, charity, church, union, community group, local or regional council, government department, family or local area. Recording your history contributes to a better understanding of our society and our world.
