Pollyanna Bristol-Murphy AGRA Associate

Pollyanna Bristol-Murphy

As a genealogist and archive researcher with a passion for social history, I am fascinated by exploring the records left by our ancestors, understanding the reasons for their creation and the picture they paint of their lives. Every family has a unique story to tell and I love helping others to uncover these characters veiled in the mysteries of time.As a genealogist and archive researcher with a passion for social history, I am fascinated by exploring the records left by our ancestors, understanding the reasons for their creation and the picture they paint of their lives. Every family has a unique story to tell and I love helping others to uncover these characters veiled in the mysteries of time.

I have been researching families’ histories for over 12 years. What started as a hobby has now grown into a career. As a graduate in Economic History (BSc) from the LSE, it is the social history I have found especially fascinating. By using the archives to create a picture of people’s lives and their relationships, all set against the various political and economic climates gives a different, more personal perspective to the lives of our ancestors.

I regularly attend courses through Pharos, SOG and IHGS, continually adding depth to my knowledge and ability to research. The IHGS correspondence course in particular has proved invaluable to my understanding of genealogy and the immense wealth of information buried deep in the archives

Recently I joined AGRA as an Associate, and this has created a fantastic network of fellow researchers, with whom I meet up regularly. This interaction has added support and insight to my research.

I currently live in Somerset and regularly researcher at Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucester archives. I also spend time in the National Archives and the London archives (Westminster and the LMA).
