I am based in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire, just to the North West of London, ideally located to undertake family history research in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire and at all the major London Archives. I can offer a research service fully tailored to your needs, and budget, in those areas and throughout the UK.
Maybe you have been inspired to research your own family origins by watching a family history programme on TV, by a chat with a relative or by an upcoming family event or anniversary. With so much genealogy information available on line, it can be difficult to know where to look and to assess what is reliable research and not just the result of assumption and guesswork.
Whatever the reason, for you or as a gift for someone else, I can help you discover details of a single ancestor, or compile a complete family tree on one or more of your family lines.
I can take whatever information you have as a starting point for your research, agree a research plan with you and then use all the available sources to put together a professional report into your family origins - fully evidenced (including negative searches, referenced and with all original sources identified and included (copyright permitting). I always aim to put the research findings into their proper historical context - producing an informative and interesting report, not just a succession of genealogical dates and facts.
I have appeared as a featured researcher on the BBC TV programmes "Family Finders" and "Who Do You Think You Are".
I am able to give entertaining and interesting talks on a wide variety of family history topics.
I have almost 20 years experience of the design and delivery of training packages in classrooms, lecture theatres and online, and hold a Certificate in Education from the University of Greenwich. I can offer a range of packages, from individual coaching to "get you started" to a full Family History course for a group of students.
I am a tutor for Pharos Tutors (http://www.pharostutors.com/) delivering specialist on-line genealogy training.
