Christine Wibberley LL.B. (Hons)

Christine Wibberley

My main area of research 

relates to what is now the United Kingdom in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I can however advise about research outside those areas, both in relation to time and location.

I specialise in

knocking down brick walls and problem solving; census records; the records of the General Register Office; wills and probate; parish registers and records; the laws and the consequences of marriage;employment;court proceedings, apprentices and the Poor Laws, birth marriage and death records as well as the topics shown on the right.

I can advise

on many aspects of family history research. If I don't know the answer I will tell you and advise who does! I can also advise as to how the workings of the law affected our ancestors and why they might have behaved as they did.

I can also advise

as to the feasibility of your quest, and I will always give you my honest opinion.Although I am based in Merseyside and have lived in various parts of Lancashire for more than forty years I can advise on research in any area of the United Kingdom, and beyond in the event that your ancestors are found to be migrants.

I am

a regular contibutor to family history magazines and publications

However you may want something different;

family history doesn’t have to end with a basic report, though it is a useful starting point. You may, for example, want to know more about an individual you have discovered yourself, an entire family, what became of the descendants of chosen ancestors or how the mysterious Aunt Emily is related to you

I am

also a qualified but now a non practising solicitor and have a particular interest in how the law affected past generations.

I also

Prepare reports for use in court proceddings, Please see my website for details.

After spending a few years doing my own research I found I had come to a full stop. I could not trace the records I needed and was getting very frustrated.

I needed another, fresh, pair of eyes to look into my family history.

I asked Christine at Trace Your Ancestry if she thought she could help in my research.I passed over the information I had and a couple of days later Christine came back and said there were some ideas which she had which might lead to the information I was after.

We agreed a price which I thought reasonable and she went ahead.

Within a week she had come back with her report which was very thorough and which looked at my research problem from a different angle.

I have to say it made very interesting reading and was well worth the money.

Tony Mallen, Essex:

My son and I wanted an unusual present for my parents . We started looking on the internet and found Christine AGRA member . I phoned Christine first as I am not very computer literate, it was lovely to be able to talk to her initially , instead of just emails . After that I did manage to email ! Christine's response was always prompt professional as well as very friendly .
My parents are absolutely thrilled with the reports and trees .
A truly wonderful and different gift all thanks to the lovely lady Christine Wibberley

Mrs. Rebecca Hughes, Yorkshire

Having done some research on our Family Ancestry our interest had grown and on planning a visit to the UK in Sept 2015 we wanted to research and visit places and find out as much detail as we could of the generations before us. 

With the professional and in depth research and documentation we now have from Christine Wibberley a much longer holiday is needed.

Within a week of our contract and agreed price, Christine displayed her skills as a professional researcher with her in depth knowledge of social and family issues of the times. All sources are well referenced and this confirms the accuracy of the report. Christine kept us informed at all times.

It has been our great pleasure to have worked with Christine of Trace Your Ancestry and recommend her to anyone attempting to create a family tree.
