UK Genealogist UK Ancestor Highlands of Scotland to South Cornwall 

My UK ancestor research services cover all areas of the UK from Johnogroats in the Highlands of Scotland to South Cornwall and Lands’ end               

I would like to explain if I may why I became a British genealogist & UK ancestor researcher.

I truly believe the family history we put research and record today is for the enrichment of knowledge for our children and their descendants of tomorrow.

          My family research statement

  • I will tailor my research to your requirements.
  • It may not be necessary for me to have a lot of details from you to start my research.
  • If available I will require your family details date, place of birth, marriage, spouse, children - then the details of your parents and grandparents
  • How successful I am in carrying out research on your family genealogy is determined by a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control. My success can depend on many factors, one being survival of relevant genealogical records. Many records were destroyed in the fires during the war. Many of the Irish family records were also destroyed by fire.
  • I prefer to see original copies of documents to base finding on. 
  • Much of my success can be put down to my passion for genealogy and my "never give in" attitude I never take anything for granted no matter how small a piece of data may appear, it can often fill a gaping hole in your family tree.
  • During my researchI will seek to find birth, marriage and death certificates, census records, obituary notices, military service records, immigration papers and newspaper cuttings. from this data I will establish a foundation on which I will build your family genealogy.
  • Once I have put together for you a comprehensive family tree based on factual genealogical data. You can use this as a starting point for your own ongoing quest for family history. Family history research never stops. It is an ongoing process.


I have dispatched my family genealogy packages to expat families living across the world.


My family genealogy research projects cover districts and counties from all over the United Kingdom.

I specialize in Scottish genealogy and the Midlands Counties of England i.e. Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire.
