Based close to the National Archives in London, I work as a professional genealogist in the United Kingdom. I offer genealogical research of the highest standard to clients whose ancestors lived in the United Kingdom, including international clients. With many years of relevant research experience and a PhD in History from Cambridge, I have conducted research concerning an enormous variety of genealogical and historical topics in archives and libraries across the United Kingdom and in the United States. I am therefore well placed to solve problems in British genealogy through meticulous documentary research. I also give talks about genealogy as well as writing articles and other publications about various related subjects. On this website, you can read about me and what I can offer.
