Family history has been my life-long passion! For me, research is not just about recording names and dates but is about really getting under the skins of our ancestors; learning more about the past and how it affected them.
I hold the Higher Certificate in Genealogy with Distinction, a BA (Hons) degree in history from King's College, London and have been a lecturer and tutor for the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogcal Studies since 2008. Over the years my interests have evolved to include local history too and at Heritage Family History I am lucky enough to have access to an extremely large collection of historic Ordnance Survey maps which often proves immensely helpful in local studies. I also currently run a One Place Studies Course for Pharos tutors as well as the Celia Heritage Family History e-Course, a seven module online course for those who wish to improve their own research skills.
My bespoke family history services include family trees and research, advice sessions, written histories and biographies, family history courses and talks. I can research your family back to the early nineteenth century throughout England, Wales or Scotland and before this date I specialise in research in Kent, East Sussex and London.
I offer a free initial assessment before undertaking all work. Please take a look at my website for further information or contact me if you have any queries.

Thank you, your enquiry has been sent
Just to let you know that I received the death certificates today and they are all correct! I am so pleased with the service I have received and the speed and efficiency with which you have dealt with my enquiries.
Firstly I would like to say how wonderful your lectures were this week. I could have listened to you for hours. You really know how to bring a subject to life and have made my desire to learn even stronger.
Thanks to some fantastic research by Celia I have now been able to trace the SISLEY line back a further 4 generations and would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone else who needs some professional and friendly assistance. The reports she produced for me are excellently detailed and easy to follow, as well as obtaining copies of birth and marriage certificates where relevant. Without Celia’s help I would still be struggling.
