Professional, friendly & qualified genealogist with expertise in Wales and South West England.

With 25 years experience of researching I have a passion for helping people to discover their ancestors stories.  Born & bred in Wales I am familiar with the geography, language and particular challenges of Welsh genealogy.

Also, being based in Monmouthshire on the Wales-England border I am ideally located to access archives across South Wales and South West England.

I run the Padfield One-Name Study, helping people to trace their Padfield connections all over the world.  I am a member of the Glamorgan, Gwent and Cornwall Family History Societies.
