I’m an experienced professional researcher and genealogist, carrying out bespoke family history research. I love finding out about people and families, finding missing pieces of the puzzle, making new discoveries, and fitting it all together. People, their families and their place in history are fascinating and I bring my passion for research to every project.

After researching my own family and working as a professional researcher I went on to further develop my skills. I gained the MSc in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies from the University of Strathclyde in 2018 (Distinction).

Based in Lichfield, Staffordshire and conveniently placed for local and national archives.
