Family history in context

Many genealogists will trace your ancestors back to the earliest possible generation which we are happy to do as part of our research service. But there is so much more to family history than where and when people were born, married and died.

We have helped all my clients find more about their ancestors: the way they lived, what their town looks like now, their brushes with institutions that recorded them and many, many more snippets of information that put your ancestors' lives in context.


From £500 for a fully researched family history ready for you to print
