Discover your family history

Welcome to my research service, dedicated to helping you discover more about your ancestry and family history. What were your ancestors’ names? Where did they live? How did they earn a living? Were they rich or poor? What part did they play in the two world wars? When did they emigrate? These are some of the questions most of us have asked ourselves at one time or another but perhaps never found all of the answers.


If you’ve ever wondered about the life and times of your ancestors but not known where to start with your family tree, or your curiosity about your family history got you started but you’ve been struggling to make progress, I’m here to help.


With 20 years’ research experience and access to thousands of records locally and on-line, I provide high quality family history research and a friendly, efficient service at competitive prices. From obtaining a birth, marriage or death certificate, locating an ancestor in a census or other historical records, delving into your house’s history and its previous occupants, through to tracing a full family tree, no project is too small or too much trouble.


I offer a free, no obligation, initial assessment to help you decide what to do next. If you go ahead and commission further research, choose from three fixed price packages or the pay-as-you-go service which can be tailored to meet your research objectives and budget. Find out more by exploring the links below. The site uses 256-bit SSL encryption so you can be assured that the information you provide is secure.


Whatever you want to discover about your family history and how your ancestors lived their lives, I look forward to hearing from you.

A free initial assessment (up to one hour research time). I’ll ask you for some basic information about the person(s) and/or family you want to research, your objective(s) and your budget, should you decide at a later date to opt for one of the paid-for research options.

Commission research to your specification and pay by the hour. No project is too small. Based in West Yorkshire, I’m ideally placed to undertake research at local Record Offices. However, I research all areas of the UK via the extensive historical record collections available on-line.

Genealogy and Family History: What’s the difference?


An often asked question! Historian Dr. Nick Barratt offers this explanation:


"We use genealogy and family history as though they are one and the same thing, but of course they are not. Genealogy is a purer search for historical connectivity between generations - building a family tree or pedigree, if you like - whereas family history is a broader piece of research into their lives and activities".


My research can take you down either path, depending on your objectives. Follow the links below for more.
