I am a friendly, experienced researcher specialising in families from Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. I can visit the Devon Record Office and Westcountry Studies Library in Exeter, the record offices in Plymouth and Barnstaple, as well as the Somerset Record Office in Taunton and the Cornwall Record Office in Truro. I search parish registers for records of birth, marriage and death, but also look at all other relevant records, including tax records, records of the Overseers of the Poor, card indexes, estate records, will indexes, newspaper archives etc. I am also expert at tracing ancestors via census records and in many underused online resources.

Genealogy research service in Australia

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
