About Me

I am a Professional Qualified Genealogist with a lifelong interest in Family History and Local History.


I gained my Higher Certificate in Genealogy with the Institute of Genealogical & Heraldic Studies in Canterbury.


I hold a Masters Degree with distinction in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies, from the University of Strathclyde. My area of research specialism was the origins of the boys of the Reformatory and Industrial Schools of Exeter.


With over 30 years of worldwide genealogical research experience I can help you with your research in most countries of the world.

I am also a member of the Register of Qualified Genealogists.
