About Me

I have lectured, managed and inspected in my previous career.

Now I am following my 25-year passion and helping people like you to connect with your ancestral roots.

Perhaps you’ve already done some research but have hit a brick wall?

Still at the computer in the early hours? Does that sound familiar?

That was me many years ago, so I know how you feel.

Years of research, courses, webinars, national and local family history events, connecting with family history societies etc has given me the expertise and practical experience required to tell your story. Not just a basic family tree but detailed information about how your ancestors lived their lives. I also study with the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies based in Canterbury. 

Never assume that your ancestors didn’t do anything of note. Most of us have ancestors who lived in a very different world where resilience and ingenuity were needed just to survive.

Click here (Harriet’s Story) to learn more about the harshness of life in inner city Birmingham from the 1850s. The subject is my maternal great grandmother.  

I will provide you with thorough and reliable research, and always mindful that this is your family who will be treated with respect.

I still remember the thrill of those early discoveries in my family history.
That could be you!
