Simon Hutchison BA (Hons) Hist (Open) AGRA Associate

Simon Hutchison

I am a genealogist based in the Herts/Essex area.

My qualifications include a BA (Hons) History, 1st Class, from the Open University which featured a module in local history and I have a Post-Graduate Certificate in Genealogical, Heraldic & Palaeographic Studies with Strathclyde University. I have participated in transcribing projects for Suffolk Family History Society and Greenwich Maritime Museum.
My interests include the history of British India and I am a member of FIBIS. I also run a one-surname one-town hobby site which tracks the genealogy of my grandmother's surname 'Whiting' in Haverhill, Suffolk, from early to modern times.

As well as producing thoroughly-sourced genealogy reports and well-crafted narrative family history reports that make excellent use of historical context, I am also happy to assist clients with specific problems regarding their ancestry. 

I have much experience of tracing East Anglian, Essex, Kent, London, Scottish Borders and Military ancestry and I have been able to assist people researching family history in British India as a result of my own experience of exploring family connections there.
