My interest in genealogy began as a childhood hobby over thirty years ago, when I started to trace my own family tree. Eventually I studied with the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, gaining the Higher Certificate in Genealogy and the Diploma in Genealogy.
I am partly based in Richmond upon Thames and partly in Dorset, and can easily visit archives in London, Surrey, Hampshire and Dorset. I am willing to travel further afield depending on the case.
I specialise in English records but am also familiar with Irish, Welsh and Scottish records, having researched families with roots in these countries.
I have a special interest in Anglo-Irish Ascendancy families and in Heraldry.
The best way to contact me is via the contact button or through the contact form on my website, providing as much relevant information as possible about your research requirements – including details of the results of any research already undertaken, and any documents obtained. This will enable me to carry out a brief. free assessment of the feasibility and scope of the project and the possible costs involved.
