Genealogist & Family Historian
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.
