I have been in practice as a professional genealogist since 1995.  I specialise in Devon & Cornwall, Somerset & Bristol and London & Middlesex in UK but also in Germany and the German-speaking parts of Europe.  I charge £25 an hour for my work (including research and reporting) but do not charge separately for travel time and expenses unless it is specifically required.  Where research is needed outside Bristol, Taunton or Exeter, I would usually employ a local researcher to work under my instruction, pay them and charge the client.

I have written several articles in the genealogical press on research in Germany and am also the author of "How to Research Your German Ancestors", now in its 3rd edition. I have also written "My Ancestor was an Anglican Clergyman" for the Society of Genealogists.
