I have been researching my family history for over 10 years. I achieved a pass with distinction in the Pharos/Society of Genealogists Family History Skills and Strategies Intermediate Certificate. I love finding out who my ancestors were and what they got up to - good and bad! It is also fascinating to see how their lives reflected what was happening in the United Kingdom, socially and politically at the time.
My own family history takes in numerous counties in England alongside Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Australia and Canada. It has its fair share of skeletons, including bigamy, incest, imprisonment, family desertion, insanity, secret adoption and destitution but also includes many examples of hardworking people who risked their lives for their country, supported their families and worked hard to improve their lot and provide opportunties for their descendents.
I can research and document full family trees or just one or two lines covering the UK. I also undertake bespoke research at the archive offices in Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey along with The National Archives at Kew.
A family history package can also make a fascinating, attractive and unusual gift for that special occasion, such as a birthday, Christmas, anniversary and wedding.
Please let me help you find your story.

"Well produced and in depth study of four generations, shedding light on my rather remote and little known family history. Clear family trees and copies of all supporting documents, all beautifully bound, have added to my pleasure in knowing so much more about previous generations".

Sarah compiled a really detailed family history for me, covering nine generations and several counties in both northern and southern England and in Ireland. She also produced a comprehensive report on one of my Irish ancestors, including his life in Ireland and military service. All of these written reports, charts and copies of the source documents were beautifully presented in a lovely binder. I was so pleased with it all I asked for a copy to give to my father for his birthday and a tailored copy for my uncle. These are treasured by them as much as myself. I highly recommend Sarah.
You’ve put so much work into this, Sarah, I’m so grateful. My mum and aunts were thrilled and blown away by how much information you have found, that nobody else has been able to find. They feel they have a proper identity now, after knowing so little about their father and his family. Seeing the photograph you found was the first time they had seen a picture of their father. I have sent you your well-earned and deserved fee.
