A bespoke pay-as-you-go service - the ideal option if you would like to focus on a particular part of your ancestry, or solve a family mystery. My research specialisms include:

  • Finding & decoding historical records

  • Building family trees

  • Providing historical context about ancestors' lives

  • Helping to overcome research "brick walls"

  • Tracing & reuniting cousins and other relatives around the world

  • Advising on archival & online research

  • Genealogy website tutorials

  • Primary source research at many archives including the National Archives, Imperial War Museum, London Metropolitan Archives, Society of Genealogists, National Army Museum, and the British Library.

Contact me for help with any of the above, or other research requests, and we will have a free consultation over the phone or email. The Research Service costs £25 per hour , and you decide in advance how much time you would like to book. I will advise you on how long I think the research might take, but there is no obligation to book more than an hour!
