Archivist, palaeographer and historical researcher in the East Midlands of England

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=ancestrails
Pre-census 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
Ancestrography 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 by Ancestrography 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.
Many thanks for this additional information. Previously they were just names and dates but having more background to them makes them much more real.
Latin and English documents transcribed, translated and fully interpreted, giving you extra insights into your ancestors' lives.
Thank you for dealing so quickly with my enquiry and for producing such an excellent first report. I am particularly pleased with the transcription of [the] will and your accompanying comments.
He has researched extensively in archives throughout Great Britain and has taught historical research methods for the universities of Birmingham, Keele, Leicester, and Oxford. He is developing an expertise in the History of the Family, teaching modules on Kinship and Marriage at the University of Nottingham during 2007-2008.

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.
For further details of my services please contact me. I shall be delighted to hear from you.
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.
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.
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.

England genealogy service for Somerset and Bristol origins

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=Poole
A friendly England genealogy service for Somerset and Bristol origins
Short and long term projects undertaken - One generation or manyOr just tying up those loose ends in your family treeFree consultation and advice - within reason!
Whether you're just starting out tracing your family history, or you're an experienced researcher with a problem that needs solving but can't get to the records yourself, then maybe I can help.
I have over 20 years' experience in Genealogical work, beginning with my own family history, then helping friends at home and overseas. Since January 1999 I have served over 240 clients from various parts of the world to further their family research. I am a professional scientist, and employ a careful and logical approach to my work - the only way with this kind of meticulous detective work.
I operate from a Somerset village near Bristol in the South West of England, with easy access to archives for both areas. If you have ancestors from this part of England I can probably help you to trace them. I work on ancestry projects in Somerset and Bristol, and am not normally prepared to work farther afield.
I aim to provide a friendly and interactive service, working with you through e-mail. Family research usually throws up plenty of surprises and contradictions which usually upset the best laid plans, so it's important that both parties keep in touch at every stage. Apart from being more fun for everyone, it actually produces better, quicker and more focussed results.
Some of the Records I use
# Civil Registration of Birth, Marriage and Death.
# Census Returns for Great Britain, every 10 years 1841 to 1901.
# Parish Registers and Bishops Transcripts of Church baptisms, marriages and burials. Some date back to 1538, though 1600 is more usual.
# Marriage Licences and Bonds recording intentions of marriage, usually of richer people.
# Wills and Administrations of Goods, often with very important family information, and sometimes Inventories of property.
# Parish Records like Minutes of the Vestry and the Overseers of the Poor, Churchwardens Accounts, Rate Books, Paupers' Settlement Certificates, Apprenticeship records, Vagrancy and Bastardy Certificates. From about 1750 to 1850 with information about the lives of some individuals.
# Tax Records such as Subsidy Rolls, Muster Rolls, Protestation Oaths, Hearth Tax, Poll Tax, Tithe Maps and Apportionments, and Land Tax Assessments. These can give snapshots of (usually property-owning) people at various points in time from Mediaeval to the 19th Century.
# Legal and Criminal Records such as Manor Court Rolls, Gaol Registers, Quarter Sessions, County Assizes, Transportation.

Professional Family History Research from Bristol England

Professional Family History Research from Bristol England
With almost 30 years experience in researching family history, I can help get you answers.
Do you have the desire to know more about your family but not the time?
Or perhaps you're just not in the right location to pursue your family research?
Lost a family member in a census, can’t find that elusive wedding or just don’t know where to look next? Then perhaps I can help.
With virtually 30 years experience in researching family history, I can provide whatever support you require. Whether it's a short ' look-up' or the building of a whole family tree, checking birth, marriage and death indexes, photographs or just a fresh pair of eyes to help you to move forward again.
I've turned my hobby into my full-time profession in order to help others to trace their roots. In the early days I travelled with my mother and grandmother spending weeks away in the North East filling out the detail of a family tree of several thousand relatives when the internet and on-line resources were non-existent. I learnt how and where to search for archive information, and how to find things quickly.

Ontario and Quebec Canadian Family History Research

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.

UK professional genealogist

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=anthonyadolph
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.

Family and local history research service for the county of Buckinghamshire England and beyond

More at http://expertgenealogy.com/?x=Buckingham
Family and local history research service for the county of Buckinghamshire England and beyond
I offer a family and local history research service for the county of Buckinghamshire and beyond.
If you have ancestry in Buckinghamshire I can help you discover your family heritage in this historic county. Heritage can encompass all evidence left behind from the past: not just the physical evidence of the past, landscape, monuments and houses, but documentary and oral evidence that reveals people’s memories, their experiences and how they fitted in to the social context of their culture and community. History, both family and local, is confined by what has been left behind but nevertheless much can still be discovered, if the evidence is available, about the most ordinary of lives.
The Internet is a wonderful medium for family history research but it is no substitute for examining original documents. Errors in transcribed indexes on Internet sites can often throw you off trail in your family history research. If your search has gone cold somewhere in Buckinghamshire you may not be able to travel to the county to investigate further. This is where a local research service can be of great help. No research task is too small.
I have been interested in history since childhood: inspired by the most amazing history teacher at senior school. I first became interested in family history when my father in law asked me to trace his mother’s family. Due to tragic circumstances he had lost touch with his mother as an infant. Encouraged by my success at finding his extended maternal family I began researching my own family history, and later, for clients who have ancestry in my home county of Buckinghamshire. I have twelve years experience in genealogical research and have also completed several house histories.
My knowledge of Buckinghamshire is not just confined to the records available in the Centre for Bucks Studies and the several local studies departments in the county. The word of mouth knowledge and contacts, that have accumulated in the many years I have lived in the Great Missenden and Chilterns area have, on occasions, been invaluable additions to my research.
