Qualification achieved or studying for: I am currently studying on the one year Postgraduate Certificate on Genealogical Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies at the University of Strathclyde.
Where in the world you are based: I am based in Newcastle upon Tyne and cover the whole of the North East of England in my research.
Any special areas of interest? I have a particular interest in parish records and what they can tell the genealogist about not just family history but also the history of the communities in which our ancestors lived.
Future plans? I hope to go on to study for the diploma and MSc at the University of Strathclyde and my aim is to work as a professional genealogist and researcher.
