Irish Townland Maps
Ordnance Survey maps of Ireland, surveyed between 1829 and 1843
For those involved with Irish genealogy this is the most important map collection ever published. Surveyed between 1829 and 1843, the maps are packed with detail and are of superb quality and craftsmanship. They are both an excellent gift for anyone with an interest in Ireland and a wonderful source of information for researchers.
The maps that form the Past Homes collection are the First Edition 6 inch scale Ordnance Survey maps of Ireland, surveyed between 1829 and 1843 - also known as the "Townland maps". Those involved in Irish genealogy regard them as the most important maps ever produced as they were the first maps to accurately show the boundaries and names of all the Townlands, Parishes and Baronies in Ireland.
As well as genealogists, the maps are of great interest to anyone of Irish descent or who have a connection with Ireland, as they invoke memories of places once visited and show how an area has changed over time.

Scottish genealogical research

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=MacLeod
Researcher with over 25 years experience in Scottish genealogical research
I have worked in and travelled throughout Scotland for 50 years and, as a result, have a close and intimate knowledge of the local geography, history, place names and people of Scotland. This can be a most useful asset when building a broader picture of a family and its history.
I undertake research for all parts of Scotland into all aspects of Genealogy and family history. Some of these and some of the records to which I have ready access are listed on my services page.
I also undertake research in more obscure records to try to progress research which has, apparently, been halted by "lack of records". I am a specialist in solving difficult problems.
ANCESTRY RESEARCH/FAMILY HISTORY
I can research your ancestry/family history as far back as you wish to go or the records will allow. Typically, these would use, first, statutory and Old Parish Registers; census records, monumental inscriptions; Kirk Session records, property records etc.and develop into many other available records. The research can be basic or more detailed to reveal more of your ancestors lives, conditions, explanations of occupations etc.
LIVING RELATIVES
"AND SOME STAYED AT HOME - COME FORWARD TO GO BACK."
Remember that not all members of a family left Scotland. Siblings of emigrants may have remained here and by finding their living descendants the present can be used to find the past. This can be most rewarding - in human terms and as a means of finding information about early generations - often not available in the records.
PROBLEM SOLVING SERVICE
I specialise in solving particularly difficult research problems. I live and work in Edinburgh where all the Scottish records are held. I have ready access to the very wide range of records available here. I can use these to try to find ways around difficult problems. Sometimes, a problem can be overcome by moving from the main research line, taking a different route, and returning to the main line at a later stage.

Genealogy research service in Australia and the United Kingdom

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=Preservetime
Complete and affordable Genealogy research service in Australia and the United Kingdom
Do you want to learn more about your origins? Do you have an ancestor that fought in the war? Are you looking for relatives? I have been researching family histories for nearly 20 years. I have helped hundreds of people in these years with their family history and have treated each one as if it were my own. I research every available avenue and treat each case with the personal touch it deserves. I have access to a vast range of records which I have listed below, and exclusive access to records not available to the public as yet. My fees are very reasonable I believe for the time and effort I put into each family history. I am always happy to offer free advice wherever I can for those who wish to do the research by themselves. I am happy to research any request whether it be a full family history or a search on a single individual. I aim to inform the enquirer throughout the process of what steps I am taking and will never order any certificates etc without consent first. I look forward to hearing from you.
My SpecialtyI specialise mainly in histories of Australian and British families. If however within my research I discover a family member in another country than I am happy to supply any available records as I have contacts all over the world. I also specialise in the military records of Australian Service personnel starting with the Boer War.
Records AvailableThe following is an idea of the records I will search. The aim in searching all these records is to not only expand your family tree but to get a good idea of what your ancestors lives were like, how they lived etc.Births Deaths & Marriages – Civil RegistrationCivil registration of Births Deaths and marriages was first introduced in England and Wales in 1837 and in Australia it was 1838. A great deal of information can be gained from these certificates and the information provided varies from country to country. This source is the foundation for family history research which can then be expanded through other records.
Census RecordsThe first National censuses were taken in England, Wales and Scotland in 1801. To begin with these census returns were only for statistical purposes. After 1841 further information about the persons age, birthplace, occupation and the family relationships was added. Unfortunately there are no national censuses for Australia at this time.
Parish RegistersPrior to civil registration parish registers that record baptisms, marriages and burials are the prime source of information. The earliest English parish registers date from 1538. I can access both English and Australian parish registers.
Military RecordsI am able to research Australian service personnel from the Boer War onwards, however I specialise in World War One and World War Two servicemen. I am able to provide unit histories, war diaries, service records etc. In most cases I can tell you what battle a serviceman died in and provide information on this battle. I am also able to provide in nearly all cases their burial location and provide a photograph of their final resting place. I also have exclusive access to the grave registration cards for World War Two servicemen. These cards are not readily available to the public and contain vital information such as cause of death, original burial location etc.
NewspapersI have access to hundreds of newspapers and have found these to be extremely beneficial. In many cases obituaries can be found in the older newspapers and quite often photographs and articles on marriages etc in later editions of the newspapers. I thoroughly search any relevant newspaper as I know from experience anything could be found.
Shipping and immigrationImmigration records are an important source of information. Within these records, passenger lists identify who within the family made the journey and from which country and in the case of the United Kingdom, which county they originated from. Approximately 1.5 million free migrants moved to Australia before 1900, with the majority coming from England. After 1945 approximately 6.5 million migrants from countries all over Europe made Australian their home. Quite often families returned home and this can also be traced.
Criminal Records - ConvictsBetween 1788 and 1868 around 162,000 convicts were sent to Australia from the United Kingdom. Through records in Australia and the United Kingdom, information of their original crime, sentence and passage can be found. Often the records of the crime and the trial can provide far more personal information about the individual than can be found in many other sources.WillsElectoral Rolls
PhotographsPhotographs are of course an invaluable asset to any family history. Where possible I will try and locate any photographs that relate to the family such as houses where they resided, schools, churches and burial locations. In the case of Australian servicemen I will also search for a photograph of the individual. If there is any particular photograph that you would like, than I will do my best to take it for you.
RelativesIf you are interested in tracing any relatives in Australia than I can help with that as well. I have had a high success rate in this and have been able to re-unite a considerable amount of families.
Documents that will be included (if available):Photocopies of Baptisms, Marriages and Death entries from original Parish RegistersBirth, marriage and death certificatesPhotocopies of Census returns showing past family membersPhotographs – where possiblePhotocopies of Australian personnel service records, battalion histories and war diaries.Photocopies of Newspaper articles

Genealogy research service in Australia and the United Kingdom

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=melaniesbroja
Complete and affordable Genealogy research service in Australia and the United Kingdom
Do you want to learn more about your origins? Do you have an ancestor that fought in the war? Are you looking for relatives? I have been researching family histories for nearly 20 years. I have helped hundreds of people in these years with their family history and have treated each one as if it were my own. I research every available avenue and treat each case with the personal touch it deserves. I have access to a vast range of records which I have listed below, and exclusive access to records not available to the public as yet. My fees are very reasonable I believe for the time and effort I put into each family history. I am always happy to offer free advice wherever I can for those who wish to do the research by themselves. I am happy to research any request whether it be a full family history or a search on a single individual. I aim to inform the enquirer throughout the process of what steps I am taking and will never order any certificates etc without consent first. I look forward to hearing from you.
My SpecialtyI specialise mainly in histories of Australian and British families. If however within my research I discover a family member in another country than I am happy to supply any available records as I have contacts all over the world. I also specialise in the military records of Australian Service personnel starting with the Boer War.
Records AvailableThe following is an idea of the records I will search. The aim in searching all these records is to not only expand your family tree but to get a good idea of what your ancestors lives were like, how they lived etc.Births Deaths & Marriages – Civil RegistrationCivil registration of Births Deaths and marriages was first introduced in England and Wales in 1837 and in Australia it was 1838. A great deal of information can be gained from these certificates and the information provided varies from country to country. This source is the foundation for family history research which can then be expanded through other records.
Census RecordsThe first National censuses were taken in England, Wales and Scotland in 1801. To begin with these census returns were only for statistical purposes. After 1841 further information about the persons age, birthplace, occupation and the family relationships was added. Unfortunately there are no national censuses for Australia at this time.
Parish RegistersPrior to civil registration parish registers that record baptisms, marriages and burials are the prime source of information. The earliest English parish registers date from 1538. I can access both English and Australian parish registers.
Military RecordsI am able to research Australian service personnel from the Boer War onwards, however I specialise in World War One and World War Two servicemen. I am able to provide unit histories, war diaries, service records etc. In most cases I can tell you what battle a serviceman died in and provide information on this battle. I am also able to provide in nearly all cases their burial location and provide a photograph of their final resting place. I also have exclusive access to the grave registration cards for World War Two servicemen. These cards are not readily available to the public and contain vital information such as cause of death, original burial location etc.
NewspapersI have access to hundreds of newspapers and have found these to be extremely beneficial. In many cases obituaries can be found in the older newspapers and quite often photographs and articles on marriages etc in later editions of the newspapers. I thoroughly search any relevant newspaper as I know from experience anything could be found.
Shipping and immigrationImmigration records are an important source of information. Within these records, passenger lists identify who within the family made the journey and from which country and in the case of the United Kingdom, which county they originated from. Approximately 1.5 million free migrants moved to Australia before 1900, with the majority coming from England. After 1945 approximately 6.5 million migrants from countries all over Europe made Australian their home. Quite often families returned home and this can also be traced.
Criminal Records - ConvictsBetween 1788 and 1868 around 162,000 convicts were sent to Australia from the United Kingdom. Through records in Australia and the United Kingdom, information of their original crime, sentence and passage can be found. Often the records of the crime and the trial can provide far more personal information about the individual than can be found in many other sources.WillsElectoral Rolls
PhotographsPhotographs are of course an invaluable asset to any family history. Where possible I will try and locate any photographs that relate to the family such as houses where they resided, schools, churches and burial locations. In the case of Australian servicemen I will also search for a photograph of the individual. If there is any particular photograph that you would like, than I will do my best to take it for you.
RelativesIf you are interested in tracing any relatives in Australia than I can help with that as well. I have had a high success rate in this and have been able to re-unite a considerable amount of families.
Documents that will be included (if available):Photocopies of Baptisms, Marriages and Death entries from original Parish RegistersBirth, marriage and death certificatesPhotocopies of Census returns showing past family membersPhotographs – where possiblePhotocopies of Australian personnel service records, battalion histories and war diaries.Photocopies of Newspaper articles

Ontario and Quebec Canadian Family History Research
I am a graduate of the National Institute of Genealogical Studies and have Professional Learning Certificates in Genealogical Studies for both Canadian and American Records. Specializing in Ontario and Quebec research, I have easy access to the Archives of Ontario, Toronto Reference Library and the Canadiana Department of the North York Public Library. With more than twenty-five years experience, I am an expert in the research of Ontario's birth, marriage and death records, census records (1842-1911), newspapers, church, military, probate, and land records, including land petitions and other documents relating to the Loyalists. Few records relating to Canadian immigration survive prior to 1865; however, after that date, detailed ships' passenger lists are available, and these serve as Canada's records of immigration until 1935.
I also have access to Ontario French Catholic parish registers.
Research in both English and French speaking Quebec is another area of expertise. A descendant of Quebec Loyalists myself, I have a great deal of experience locating documents relating to the Loyalists of the Eastern Townships of Quebec, including English parish registers where available. I also have access to French Catholic parish registers throughout the province. These registers are the primary source for Quebec births, marriages and deaths, as civil registration did not begin in that province until very recently. Census records, which predate those available in Ontario, are another source of valuable information.

Parish RegistersPrior to civil registration parish registers that record baptisms, marriages and burials are the prime source of information. The earliest English parish registers date from 1538. I can access both English and Australian parish registers.
Military RecordsI am able to research Australian service personnel from the Boer War onwards, however I specialise in World War One and World War Two servicemen. I am able to provide unit histories, war diaries, service records etc. In most cases I can tell you what battle a serviceman died in and provide information on this battle. I am also able to provide in nearly all cases their burial location and provide a photograph of their final resting place. I also have exclusive access to the grave registration cards for World War Two servicemen. These cards are not readily available to the public and contain vital information such as cause of death, original burial location etc.
NewspapersI have access to hundreds of newspapers and have found these to be extremely beneficial. In many cases obituaries can be found in the older newspapers and quite often photographs and articles on marriages etc in later editions of the newspapers. I thoroughly search any relevant newspaper as I know from experience anything could be found.
Shipping and immigrationImmigration records are an important source of information. Within these records, passenger lists identify who within the family made the journey and from which country and in the case of the United Kingdom, which county they originated from. Approximately 1.5 million free migrants moved to Australia before 1900, with the majority coming from England. After 1945 approximately 6.5 million migrants from countries all over Europe made Australian their home. Quite often families returned home and this can also be traced.
Criminal Records - ConvictsBetween 1788 and 1868 around 162,000 convicts were sent to Australia from the United Kingdom. Through records in Australia and the United Kingdom, information of their original crime, sentence and passage can be found. Often the records of the crime and the trial can provide far more personal information about the individual than can be found in many other sources.WillsElectoral Rolls
PhotographsPhotographs are of course an invaluable asset to any family history. Where possible I will try and locate any photographs that relate to the family such as houses where they resided, schools, churches and burial locations. In the case of Australian servicemen I will also search for a photograph of the individual. If there is any particular photograph that you would like, than I will do my best to take it for you.
RelativesIf you are interested in tracing any relatives in Australia than I can help with that as well. I have had a high success rate in this and have been able to re-unite a considerable amount of families.
Documents that will be included (if available):Photocopies of Baptisms, Marriages and Death entries from original Parish RegistersBirth, marriage and death certificatesPhotocopies of Census returns showing past family membersPhotographs – where possiblePhotocopies of Australian personnel service records, battalion histories and war diaries.Photocopies of Newspaper articles

Pre-census UK genealogy. Ancestral Biography

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=ancestrails
Pre-census UK genealogy. Ancestral Biography. Mediaeval & Early Modern Latin translated.
Qualified & experienced Archivist, palaeographer and historical researcher in the East Midlands of England - Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland. Specialist in tracing origins of early New England settlers in this region, which includes the homes of several Pilgrim Father Families around Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. New discoveries and corrections of published genealogies are still being made.
Training and consultancy in research skills (palaeography, diplomatic, latin, etc.). A lot more happened in your ancestors' lives than just baptism, marriage and burial. I can help you to tease out the other aspects of their experience, particularly if they lived in Pilgrim Father or "Tales of Gotham" Country.
A wealth of untapped evidence survives from Mediaeval and Early Modern England, including wills and inventories, manorial and bawdy court records, deeds and terriers; you would benefit from the help of a professional in deciphering and interpreting them. The results could be surprising; do you just want a genealogy or would you prefer ancestral biography?
Genealogical research service specialises in pre-census genealogy and genealogical biography. There is a wealth of sources available in local archives of which only a small proportion is yet online. Research prior to 1841 (the first detailed census year) becomes progressively more difficult and expert advice or completion will often be of inestimable value; before 1733 many documents were in Latin and we can help you jump this hurdle too. Projects undertaken in the East Midlands; advice given for projects throughout the UK.
Family trees and ancestral biographies compiled from all available sources including census, parish registers, wills and inventories, manorial records, poor law records, churchwardens' accounts and many more. Set in the context of demography, local and national history, and the sociological history of families, which is now an academic discipline in its own right.
Latin and English documents transcribed, translated and fully interpreted, giving you extra insights into your ancestors' lives.

Historical & Genealogical Research & Consulting for Philadelphia Families

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=Kensington
Historical & Genealogical Research & Consulting for Philadelphia Families, Businesses,& Institutions
I offer genealogical and historical research in Philadelphia area repositories and search records on individuals, families, businesses, institutions, and organizations. I prepare genealogical and biographical sketches of your family members, company officers, institutional directors, or organizational officials. I also consult with you on your genealogical research for your Philadelphia ancestors and make myself available to photograph their tombstones, houses, or other structures where they might have lived, worked, or worshiped. I specialize in studies that combine Kensington and Fishtown history and genealogy in order to place those families, businesses, institutions, and organizations, within a local historical context, bringing them to life more fully then a generalist genealogist, or historian, can possibly do. Although, my specialty is in these Philadelphia neighborhoods, I am also quite capable of providing these same services for subjects in the whole of the Philadelphia Metropolitan area. For examples of my work contact me and I will send a narrative of a family history, biography, or business history, that I published, or was contracted for.
I have an in-depth understanding of Philadelphia’s communities through many years of research and I am able to provide the historical context for your history that will make your unique story come alive. If you would rather write your own family, business, or institutional history, I could still be of value to you by placing your family, business, institution, or organization in context with an introductory historical chapter on Fishtown, or Kensington history. I can also fill in the already written reports that you have researched to enlarge and complete them. I am also available for consulting on those “brick walls” that you may have encountered along the way and if your project falls into my specialty area, it would be quite possible that I could break them down.
If you need general historical research work that might be useful for archaeology, building, engineering, environment studies, the insurance business, urban planning, law, or real estate, I would be especially helpful with these historical neighborhoods of Fishtown and Kensington. I could also help those oral and cultural historians and other academic historians, who do not often venture north of Vine street and who might be interested in publishing work on these communities.
My services are also offered to local and citywide non-profit agencies as well, that might be interested in the modern urban studies of Fishtown and Kensington in order to plan for their programming, or provide historical perspectives for grant writers when seeking funding.
