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.

My reports are researched 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.

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.

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.
