I personally have known Ian Hextall for the last five years. In this time I have found Ian, to be honest & trustworthy, and value his expertise in family history, without his knowledge I would never have been able to trace my own family history. Ian is a great family man and has a lot of passion towards family history.

My daughter-in-law in New Zealand has been trying for around fifteen years to trace her blood grandfather in Scotland, without success. Her mother was born illegitimately, and all she had to go on was the signature of the father on her mother’s birth certificate.Ian Hextall has amazingly tracked this man down, with only this signature to help him. He discovered that he was, in fact, Scottish, although everyone thought he was from the North of England, and his real identity was uncovered by his signature on his father’s death certificate matching exactly the one on his illegitimate daughter’s birth certificate. A whole new set of relatives has been uncovered by Ian I really cannot recommend him highly enough. He certainly goes the extra mile to uncover secrets of the past, and he seems to have an instinctive feel for these things. We are all very grateful to him for succeeding in such a difficult task.

Ian’s assistance has been an invaluable help to me in my own family research. His knowledge of British sources is extensive and he was able to point me in useful directions when I had run into the proverbial brick wall that every amateur genealogist hits sooner or later. I especially like the fact that he insists on viewing original sources wherever possible rather than trusting someone else’s transcription. Ian and I have now been corresponding for seven years and I hope to have the benefit of his knowledge and experience for much more. I highly recommend his services to anyone who needs help with their family history.

We have been trying to locate a family in England for a very long time. The tragedy happened in 1929, in Haifa, Palestine, when a British Official was killed in riots, in down town Haifa. It was thanks to Ian, that with a very professional approach, succeeded in locating the family. We are very grateful.
