Ian Hilder BA (Hons), FSG

Ian Hilder

I have been a full-time professional researcher for almost 30 years, so there aren't many records that I haven't dealt with! From research in local archives, to the national repositories in London, from medieval to modern records, document transcription,compiling pedigrees and house histories, to tracing living relatives.

To keep the costs down for my clients, I use the expertise of locally-based research agents when research is required outside my own area. I am happy to work in blocks of time to suit your budget, rather than charging for the whole project up front. So I hope that you will find my services both economical and reliable.

You can see some of mylocal history and biographical work as part of a 3-year Heritage Lottery-funded local history research project 'Contrasting Communities?' at: www.bandhpast.co.uk.
