Family history is a longterm interest. I was born and grew up in Orkney surrounded by cousins of all descriptions, grasping the “once removed” concept at a young age. After years of researching my own family, I decided it was time to formalise and extend my genealogy skills and knowledge so studied with the University of Strathclyde. That led to setting up my own business, Janealogy.

I love the detective work of genealogy, investigating sources, piecing together the evidence with care and great attention to detail. And that’s how I will do work for you.
