I am based near Edinburgh, home
of ScotlandsPeople Centre and the National Records of Scotland, and I also have easy access to Glasgow, where many additional
records are located. I have traced family histories for clients in the UK and abroad. I am proud and delighted that a great number of my clients have stated that they
look upon their family history as a treasured heirloom which can be passed from generation to generation. Many satisfied clients have given the ultimate compliment of
returning to have other branches of their family tree traced. I have also carried out research over several years for television programmes, (both in the UK and USA) such as "Who Do You
Think You Are". My most recent work has been on Lulu's episode, when my name was included in the credits.
I particularly enjoy researching the social history of families. It's all very well finding out the basic details of the research, such as the births, deaths and marriages, but to
build a picture of that family's life throughout the years, adding flesh to the bones, is what I aim to achieve in my reports.
It may be that a client has come upon a
"brick wall" in their own research. This is a common occurrence for many people and I can assure you that I will leave no stone unturned in the
search to solve the problem. I will visit other locations, if necessary, and treat your commission with the zeal and dedication that is my trademark.
