What I can do for you


STARTING YOUR FAMILY TREE

No two family trees are the same. I can help you get started with your tree. I will provide you with a detailed family tree and research notes. I can do your tree as far back as possible or as far as you like. I will provide for you a detailed family tree and reports on the individual people. One of my favourite things to do is to delve into the lives of our past. I will try to compile reports on your ancestor's lives - what their day to day lives would've been like, or anything about their lives.

Please have a look in the News section for some examples of reports I have done on particular people of the past. 

BREAKING DOWN YOUR BRICK WALLS


Genealogy is not always as easy as the TV shows make it out to be. Sometimes we get stuck and a second pair of eyes can help us move forward. I'm more than happy to help you with your brick wall and to discover where your elusive ancestor is hiding! I will provide you with a report detailing the information I find for you. However, I must stress that unless you are truly connected to the aristocracy in some way,at some point your tree will come to a dead end. For example, one line of my tree are Scottish peasants. I have been able to trace them back to the mid 17th century but have come to a dead end. No more records exist for them prior to that as the records either have been destroyed or never existed in the first place.  There comes a time when one has to realise that there is literally no more records to find so you just cannot find anymore information. I will be honest with you from the beginning as to the likelihood of being able to find your ancestors.
