Great Britain Genealogical Research

Great Britain Genealogical Research
I specialise in finding families from Great Britain and their place of origin. I also locates living relatives in Great Britain and abroad.
I was trained at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies in Canterbury, England and was until recently the Managing Director and Head of Research at a leading Genealogical research company.
I researched and presented BBC2's Blood Ties and appeared in an expert context on several radio and TV programmes. I have just finished researching and filming "Lost Royals" a major TV documentary.
Although research is my major interest I am also called upon to write pieces for Family History publications including several important articles on tracing overseas relatives for Your Family Tree. I have a regular monthly column in Practical Family History and I also write for Family History Monthly.
I have been researching family trees for over 20 years now. I came to genealogy from an interest in English social history. The novels of Dickens were more of an introduction to family history to me than any particular prompting from within to find out more about my Welsh ancestry.
So it was that after studying English at Hull University and spending not a little time in the bar with the poet Philip Larkin that I ended up in Canterbury and learned my family history methodology at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies.
It is hard to calculate but I would estimate that over the years I have investigated some 5000 family trees. The number of individuals is much much more difficult to guess at. Whether you require a people search or ancestry researched, there is little I have not encountered before.
