I love creating family trees for my clients, working from my home in Royal Wootton Bassett or on board my narrowboat! I specialise in researching six generation family trees in the UK, and I am particularly au fait with families based in Wiltshire and Cornwall.

I am highly experienced in conducting detailed WW1 soldier research and commemorations. I can also undertake oral histories, house histories, historical writing, and research projects. I have a particular interest in canal heritage and narrowboats.

I am currently working on two books, a history of ‘Wootton Bassett 100 Years Ago’ and ‘A History of Teasmades’. I am also developing Twiggli, a website where professional and amateur genealogists can create beautiful family tree posters from their Gedcom files.
