Welcome

I’m Patricia Marks Family Historian, based in the beautiful county of Wiltshire in England.

I feel very lucky to be doing a job I love, taking clients on a journey into their ancestral past.
Imagine yourself making this journey and discovering a family history that you can share and pass down to future generations. What a wonderful gift to receive!

Or perhaps you want to learn to do your own research or surprise a friend or family member with a family history themed gift. 

I have experienced a wide range of emotions while researching my own family tree and I don’t doubt that you will have a similar experience.

If you would like to go on your own journey and discover who and where you came from, then please read on.

About Me

Read More

My grandfather died before I was born but I wanted to learn more about his service in the First World War. I was delighted with the amount of information Patricia Marks Family Historian was able to find, even though his service record has not survived. This means a lot to me at a time when we are remembering how much we owe to those who served. If you want to discover how your ancestors lived their lives, I thoroughly recommend Patricia as a professional researcher.

I have been amazed and excited at the amount of detail provided by Patricia Marks Family Historian. With only my parents’ dates of birth, and without any known siblings, she has provided me with full details of 5 generations of my family history, including a few surprises! This has all been backed up with birth, marriage and death certificates as well as parish records. It has left me eager to research other branches of my family tree. A truly professional service with results that are easy to understand.

Patricia came to our local WI group and gave a fascinating talk on local documents she had found, what they mean and the history behind them. The talk was very interesting and made personal to our town which made it even more poignant. Thank you so much Patricia, we shall certainly be inviting you back again and highly recommend you to other groups.

Patricia did a wonderful job of detailing my mother’s family tree with very little information to start with. Throughout the journey, her communication was excellent, sending regular updates of findings. The final report and presentation book were incredible, a very lovely surprise for my mother’s 80th birthday. I highly recommend.
