I have been researching my ancestors since i was 15 ( just over 30 years now) and i still have that same passion i had then if not more so. The buzz i get from finding that elusive ancestor or knocking down a brick wall is unbeatable! I love to help folk and have aided so many it makes Genealogy such a pleasure.
I can look into either paternal or maternal line and go 2 or more generations back if the info is there to be found.
IF YOU HAVE A QUERY OR WOULD LIKE ME TO LOOK INTO YOUR GENEALOGY PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.
WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?
I don't claim to be professional but i do get results. The passion for my hobby has helped me turn Genealogy into a career and with over 30 years experience i have a vast knowledge that helps me find the ancestor that doesn't want to be found!
GENEALOGY SUCCESS STORIES
My paternal line i started researching the good old fashioned way with hours spent trawling through the micro fiches at my local library when i was 15. However i managed to quite quickly research back to my 2 x great grandfather Thomas Chatfield. I then wrote to all the Chatfields who lived near and one chap wrote back to me. He was stuck on his great grandfather and just couldn't get any further back. I met up with him and his great grandfather was only the brother of my great grandfather!
After a few years researching we have managed to find the family line living in the same town for over 500 years and it was so good to see the chap so happy being able to knock down that wall!
When i moved one of my new neighbours asked about Genealogy and would i be interested in researching his ancestors as he knows very little. My neighbour is in his 80s so i set about the task very quickly.
I managed to research both his paternal and maternal sides back 5 generations and his paternal side originally living down south which he had no idea about - he was so overwhelmed and that's what makes this job so worthwhile.
There is always one though.....
The only person i have not been able to find is my very own great grannie!
I have never been able to find her death - the family story was she committed suicide but this after years of researching i found wasn't the case!
I believe that she ran away as she found life hard with my great grandfather for whatever reason. The family aren't saying or don't know and every death that could be her i have the certificate but no it's not her.
This mystery i will solve.
I WRITE UP REPORTS FOR EACH SURNAME I RESEARCH AND INCLUDE PRINTOUTS OF THE CENSUS RETURNS & OTHER INFO FOUND IN MY SEARCHING.
PRICES START AT £30 FOR A 2 GENERATION SEARCH AS I DON'T DO ANYTHING FANCY JUST SPEND HOURS RESEARCHING WHICH IS WHY I DON'T CHARGE BY THE HOUR.
