Research into your ancestry is time consuming, frustrating and endless.  It can also be confusing with some of the terminology – even the basics: ancestry, genealogy and family history – what is the difference I here you cry!


This may sound obvious but your Ancestry is your origins or background. 


Your Genealogy is the record of your descendants, prepared from valid sources of information and documents showing you are connected to another person, probably better known by most as a family tree.

Family History

Your family history, is more than just a family tree, it is a biographical study of your descendants, their life, the community and country in which they lived, prepared from valid sources of information and document.

What’s your story?

Are you interested in researching our family tree or want to know more in depth details of your ancestors lives? Thorough research takes a lot of time, even with the best of the websites. We all know how precious time is today, so let me do the hard work for you. Please see my Research Services.

My specialism include maritime ancestry from the merchant navy, commercial diving, light house keepers and the coastguard to canal workers. I am also developing a programme to attract children of all ages to genealogy, ancestry and family history.

Professionalism, compassion and expertise makes this an excellent service

Very happy with the report, answered the questions I had about my grandfather and raised many more. A lot more information than family members have been able to find.
