Debra Carter Adv Dip Local History

Debra Carter

I work with the international team of AncestryProGenealogists based in London. Our Mission is to provide high-value family history discoveries and journeys that are rewarding for both clients and employees.

With an accredited education in genealogy and local history and a background in international shipping and IT, my particular area of genealogy expertise is research of Australian, UK and Norwegian records.   I conduct research not only of the major subscription databases, but also of social history, finding and adding depth, contrast and colour to family history stories.

I enjoy networking and have presented talks on a variety of genealogical subjects. I also enjoy family history tutoring, having built and delivered courses to adult learners in the UK and Australia.

I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Society of Australian Genealogists, a Society of Genealogists member in London and have a one-name study with the Guild of One Name Studies (Fleeson).

I contacted DAC Genealogy Services to research my Husband's family tree, in particular his Father, as periods of his life were a complete mystery to the family.  Debra has worked tirelessly to find the information that my Husband was seeking.  As it was to be a gift for my Husband, I received a booklet from Debra which is very professionally presented.  It is full of background information as well as copies of all the relevant birth, marriage and death certificates, photos and of course the family tree.  I thank Debra for all her hard work, her professionalism and her knowledge and would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone who wishes to look into their heritage."

My wife has always been fascinated by her family history and already done a lot of research taking it back several generations. But Debra's work has not only helped verify that but take it back a further four generations and with the addition of more context about the lives of her her forbears as well as birth certificates and photos. It truly was a magnificent birthday gift, so good that I've decided to have all 4 branches of my family tree investigated also! Wonderful research by a talented lady who is a delight to deal with. Could not recommend her any more highly".

I highly recommend the services Debra provides.  She is so personable; it is so pleasant to talk with her about what I hope to research.  She always is very prompt in locating information I need.  She provided excellent advice, directions to libraries, and even an itinerary for a trip I took to Devon.  Her help was invaluable"
