Ben started to invest more time on his history business, as well as becoming involved in the broader family history community through board position with the SA Genealogy and Heraldry Society and the Association of Professional Genealogists.

Giving back to the community is an important aspect for anyone, and even more so for those in the history field. The majority of indexing and compiling undertaken for archives has been completed with volunteer hours, something professionals have been able to access and use in their business. It seems only fair that we give back. To this end, History Helper, either through individuals or as a business, has given hours back in voluntary advice roles and in indexing projects.
