I can offer you:

A family tree or a beautifully bound family history for your own use or as the perfect present for a birthday, wedding, Christmas or that special anniversary. Every commission is produced and designed to your own specifications.

Look-up services  I can offer on-the-spot help in archives in East and West Sussex and London to find entries in census, General Registration, wills and probate records, including help with “brick walls.”

House history Have you ever wondered who lived in your house before you, the history of the house itself or what went on in the surrounding community?

Transcription and translation Do you have old documents in hand-writing you can’t decipher or letters and documents in other languages? I offer skills in palaeography (scripts used in earlier centuries). I speak and write excellent French and German and have a good understanding of Spanish, with access to colleagues who speak other languages such as Polish, Russian and Swedish.

Whatever work I undertake you can expect a professional and personally orientated service. I bring a passion for history, considerable experience and expertise and boundless enthusiasm for research to every commission I take on. My services are subject to the AGRA code of conduct and I give the following guarantees:

  • Full confidentiality
  • Regular consultation on both the progress of your research and the budget
  • Determination to find the fullest and most accurate information
  • On completion of your research a detailed report outlining all the findings on either paper, CD or by e-mail.
