Professional Genealogist and Family Historian

RESEARCH

Essential building blocks

As a professional genealogist I know where and how to research. Starting with Births, Marriages and Deaths, then onto further investigation into Parish records, Military records etc. Not every search will provide positive results and these need to be recorded with equal importance. I believe it’s worth exploring all avenues to create your own unique research.

HOW MY RESEARCH SERVICE WORKS

Need help with all of your research or a small part of it? Do you have a set budget to work to?

The ability to research a family tree depends on a number of factors; the survival of records, the condition of historical documents, the popularity of a surname, migration patterns, and even the social standing of an ancestor. Having a professional, qualified and personal service will help you get the results you want and possibly progress your research back to at least the early 1800s/late 1700s.
