John was able to help in finding my grandfather after many years of struggling to find even a clue. John searched through many files in London, and he came up with a birth and my grandfathers original name, my great grandmother, and his whereabouts through various institutions when he was abandoned in Chelsea. I cannot say just how much help John has been, we would never have been able to do this ourselves, we wouldn't have known where to begin - John solved our greatest problem - my grandfather's identity.

Thank you so much for the incredible research you have done for my family tree. You have a real passion for research and your portrayal of the times wrote of that people lived in, painted wonderful pictures in my mind of how they would have lived, related to others and worked - very inspiring indeed! Thank you for the wills from people, the copies of birth certificates, marriage certificates, dates and linking you did to make old anonymous photos come to life! Just brilliant!

John. As you know I tried to do this on my own and got stuck! You obviously know just the right places to go, and wow! - how did you find all that info? Just great. Thanks, John for all your hard work.
