New Enquiries

Unfortunately due to my current heavy workload I am unable to take on work for new clients until July 2019.  If however, you would like to discuss your research plan and reserve a slot from this date then please contact me.

My services

Based in Derbyshire but covering all of England, SMR Family Research can offer you a full range of family history research services for clients both at home and abroad.  I recognise that your own ‘hands on’ research is often limited either by time or geographical location and so bearing this in mind I can continue from where your research has stopped.  No commission is too small, so whether you require a specific piece of information to be found, an individual to be traced or a full family history to be produced, the choice is yours. 

I offer a no obligation consultation, which after clarifying your requirements, will include a free half hour check of sources to establish the next steps needed to progress your research and if you wish to go ahead a mutually agreed research plan.

I make regular trips to archives and libraries in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and travel to other counties can be arranged by mutual agreement.

About me

My interest in family history was inspired by just a brief family tree, found on a dated piece of paper in family documents about twenty five years ago.  I have gone on to trace many ancestors – paupers, gentry and everything in between.

This sparked my career as a Professional Genealogist and lead me to set up my own business, SMR Family Research in 2011.   Having initially concentrated on probate genealogy work, I now also cover family history research.

I am continually striving to expand my family history knowledge to provide a better service to my clients.  To this end I am currently studying with the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies for the Higher Certificate in Genealogy.

Sue Rimmington's work for me as a family history researcher has been professional at all times. It is thoroughly researched and clearly presented. The information extrapolated is full but concise. She is willing to undertake precisely what is asked for and she presents her findings methodically and quickly. She is happy to explore with the client any theories or avenues of research which may arise because of her findings. She will also state honestly when she considers that all avenues have been explored. I shall not hesitate to use her services again and am happy to be contacted for further discussion, if necessary.
