Dr. Olivia Robinson BA, MSc M.Phil D.Phil (Oxon)

Olivia has extensive research experience both through postgraduate studies and in a professional context. She holds a PhD in History from the University of Oxford on foreign migrant domestic servant women in London from 1880-1939, and an MSc in English Local History focused on the leisure history of Victorian working classes. She works as a researcher for heralds at the
College of Arms and carries out genealogical research on their behalf. Ancestories has researched family histories for the UK and Australian television series "Who Do You Think You Are?" and for "My Secret Family", with Olivia Robinson appearing in several episodes as an expert contributor.

Oxford Genealogy was born in 2009 when Olivia went freelance and was able to invest the time in other people's projects. This has gone from strength to strength and now includes providing advice on genetic genealogy and all the possibilities presented by DNA testing. In 2014
Oxford Genealogy was renamed Ancestories to reflect the emphasis of local and social history upon our work. The same rigorous genealogical research methods are still applied with the added benefit of contextual historical knowledge gained from an academic perspective.
