UK professional genealogist

UK professional genealogist, writer and broadcaster, and has been tracing family and home histories for over twenty years. He was Research Director of the supporting company of the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, and now runs his own successful genealogical practice in London. He traces family trees all over the world.
Research tends to fall into two broad categories – tracing family trees back from scratch, or undertaking research to solve problems for people who have already started, but have got stuck. He also seeks living relatives, and has particular interest in heraldry, using DNA for genealogy, surnames and ancient family trees.
Increasingly, records are becoming available on the Internet. These are used where appropriate, especially when the Internet allows large collections of material to be searched quickly. However, Internet resources are not a substitute to proper research, undertaken by properly trained researchers, using proper records, in archives. Too often now, it is on the Internet that research runs into difficulties, and mistakes are made. As ever, it is amongst the original records in the archives that problems are overcome and mistakes corrected.
