Professional Genealogist

At Memories In Time our passion is to help you to research and discover Yesterday’s Moments through your family history, stories, DNA and photographs and to preserve and create Tomorrow’s Memories for future generations.

Fiona Brooker

When I first tell people that I am a genealogist, one of the first questions is how far back have you got? For me it’s not so much how far back have I got, but what I have discovered about my family; the stories, the journeys and the connections like the moment of touching the document at National Archives that my five x great grandparents had signed in the early 1800’s.

Memories in Time grew from my desire to help others start tracing their family history. As a professional genealogist I have helped others get started; get through road blocks; link to family using DNA; get organised and find heirs to estates. I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) and completed ProGen in 2018. With a background in adult education, I love to teach family history and digital scrapbooking. There is nothing better than getting someone else addicted to the hunt for their ancestors.

Whilst living in the UK, I had the opportunity to research in record office and archives and visit the places where my ancestors had lived (there is nothing like it!). I was also able to study and after a 30 week night course I achieved a Higher Certificate in Genealogy from the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies.

Beyond my own research I have served as both President and Treasurer of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG) and worked with local branches. I convened the organising committee for the 2008 and 2018 NZSG AGM & Conference’s in Christchurch.

Oh and if you really want to know, I can trace my family tree back to the mid-17th century. Finding out about my bigamist great, great, grandmother… that’s another story.
