I have been a keen genealogist for many years, researching records in Scotland, England and beyond.

My particular specialisms are the papers of landed estates, business and financial records, and archival research generally; however I am able to tackle all aspects of Scottish family history.

I always strive to present research reports in such a way that the lives of our ancestors can be seen within the social and economic context of the times.
