It's our Birthday


September is an exciting month for us as it is our birthday, and this year Gould Genealogy & History turns 44. I know it’s not a ‘BIG’ birthday, but we’re still excited, and we’re going to celebrate, and YOU get the presents.

We have lots of exciting things planned throughout the month, including giveaways, special offers and discounts, so be sure to keep an eye on our emails for the latest happenings.

But first, here’s a little background information, our business (Gould Genealogy & History) has become an icon in the Australian genealogy scene, and to some degree overseas too. This small family business started out as Gould Books back in 1976 by Alan and Anthea Phillips who ran it from their home. Now 44 years later, with some name changes along the way, and other brands added in to the mix, it is still owned and operated by the same family, with the 2nd and 3rd generation, now also working here.

Over the past 44 years we have helped so many people with their research, either through products or through advice, and hopefully we’ve inspired some as well. But we couldn’t have done this without our wonderful customers so …. we THANKYOU, THANKYOU, THANKYOU!!


So we have a huge prize pool (valued at almost $5000) of giveaways. From vouchers to subscriptions, from USBs to archival storage, from jewellery to genealogy software, we’re giving it away. And to enter all you need to do is place an order with us during September. It’s that simple. See below for the official Ts&Cs.

Here’s the complete list of prizes up for grabs:
