Family History Research

Are you interested in your family history, but don’t know where to start? Maybe even thinking of a different or unusual gift for a birthday or anniversary? Looking for a friendly person to help you? I have 30 years’ experience in doing my own research and I am in the process of studying and getting qualified with the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies.

I worked for Suffolk Libraries for 30 years and as a result I have a methodical and organised approach to my work.

 

I have a passion for family history and social history, in fact, I'm a bit of a geek. I absolutely love doing the research and I am subscribed to the major ancestry research web sites already, so you don’t need to. I have access to the following:

 

  • Birth, marriage & death indexes

  • Census returns

  • Parish records

  • Wills & probate

  • Directories and newspaper archives.        

  • Military records

I can help with:

 

  • Brick walls

  • One off searches

  • Family tree construction and bigger projects

  • Tracking down births, marriages, deaths

  • Census returns

  • Newspaper archives

If it's not listed here just ask me, I may be able to help you or point you in the right direction.
