I have been researching genealogy in one form or another since 2003. I pride myself on delivering comprehensively researched, engagingly written and visually pleasing reports and books to be passed down the generations.

Irish Citizenship

If you are need to locate a record in order to obtain an Irish passport, please get in touch and I will help you with your search. I have successfully assisted many individuals with their Irish citizenship and passport applications. Additionally, I have a great track record in sourcing and procuring difficult-to-find records from across the globe.

In order to apply for Irish citizenship by descent and Irish citizenship by association, you will need to produce a range of original birth, marriage, divorce and death certificates for a number of generations. I can source these records on your behalf and take away some of the stress and guide you along the way.

Heirloom Narrative Books

My sewn-bound, fully researched are 200 pages long and designed to the highest professional standard with a focus on colourful detail and contextual information regarding ancestors. I have professional writing experience and I was a credited writer on programmes for BBC Radio 4.

Heirloom Trees

For those who have already undertaken genealogical research of their own, I offer the service of writing up and visually presenting your family story in book or tree format. I work with a professional artist to create beautifully designed family trees for gifts and family heirlooms.

Derby and Derbyshire

I also specialise in Derby and Derbyshire based research, and have a great deal of experience tracing ancestry for the purposes of obtaining Irish citizenship.
