Genealogical Research

I undertake research across the UK, focusing especially on the six historic counties within the English West Midlands region: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. I am within easy reach of all the major record offices and repositories in this area and also have access to online databases, archives, documents and indexes.

Every assignment is different, from a one-off enquiry, such as a search at a record office within the Midlands area, to one-to-one professional advice to get you past a 'brick wall', or concerted research over an extended period. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

I offer a series of research packages to meet all pockets and requirements, as well as a 'pay-as-you-go' option, charged at an hourly rate. I also welcome enquiries from researchers and professional genealogists overseas who are looking for a local link or partner for research in Britain's industrial heartland.

Writing and Publishing

Want to share your discoveries with others? Why not combine research with my writing, publishing and/or web design packages to create a full family history solution. I can write up your research into a compelling story and turn it into a full-colour book or photo-album to share with family and friends. What better way to ensure that your valuable work will be preserved for future generations?
