Who What Where Research services can help you to begin to research your Family History project, or to continue the journey. The service is really easy to use, and I pride myself on trying to add extra information for your project, such as chronological timelines - putting your family history into a historical context. Every client is presented with a written report, accompanied by basic ancestral charts and maps.  I have also been asked by some clients to develop their projects into websites. Above all, I believe that the information should be easily accessible. 

Based in West London, I have easy access to all the major London archives including The National Archives at Kew, London Metropolitan Archives and The Society of Genealogists.

Being proud to be Welsh, I specialise in researching histories in the southern, western and mid-counties of Wales, and regularly visit archives such as West and South Glamorgan, as well as the National Library of Wales.  Coping with the complexities of so many ancestors sharing a common last name whilst being completely unrelated, can present a special challenge. Similarly having knowledge of the area involved can help to avoid geographical confusion!   

I have a background in HIstory, having taken my B.A at University College Cardiff, and after a gap of many years working in publishing, have happily returned to my natural habitat via the Postgraduate Certificate in Genealogical Studies at the University of Strathclyde.

"Many thanks for the dilligent and painstaking work resulting in a fascinating picture of the family. Much of the material is new to me but some names and places resonate with stories told in the family in years gone by. The wider family will surely treasure this record."

"I was very impressed with the breadth and depth of your report on my grandmother, especially the extra things like maps and pictures: great stuff!"

"Thank you so much for the report, which I am now going to pass on to my sister-in-law in Australia. Considering the huge number of people with the same surname in the area at the time, I think you've done a brilliant job in sorting out which are G's ancestors."
