Here are some of the comments that I have received about the services I have provided…

  • When I first contacted Sheila regarding my interest in exploring my family history, I had no knowledge of anyone further back than my grandparents.  Sheila not only presented me with a highly detailed family tree but combined it with a tremendous amount of fascinating background colour to my ancestors’ lives going back as far as 1680.  If you’re interested in exploring your own family history, I would very definitely recommend Sheila and the in-depth service she offers.” Mike Bate.

  • I have been amazed at the astonishing information and revelations about both my paternal and maternal family which Sheila Herd discovered during her search for my ancestors.

Sheila put flesh on known family stories handed down for generations and on families and their stories which had been forgotten, lost or were unknown. One was a Hereford husband who had disappeared, eventually declared dead, but was alive and living in poverty in London.

Sheila's research was meticulous, backed by newspaper reports, baptism, marriage and funeral records and the census going back to the first in 1841. Her research has been filed in a mighty folder of family trees, broken down under the names of individual members, all cross referenced, and with photographs where they exist.

Sheila's research has given me fantastic insight into my ancestors. It is to be followed by her looking for the full story of my husband's ancestors. I fully recommend her to anybody who wants to know the story of their ancestors. Penny Thompson. July 2022

  • Just had my Mum’s side of the family done by this company. Very professional service, I found Sheila extremely helpful and approachable. I found the whole experience extremely interesting and would thoroughly recommend her if you are thinking of looking into your family’s past. K M


  • Sheila worked so hard on my Family Tree finding out things I would never have dreamed of happening in my family. Some very good and some not so good. It was so interesting. I really recommend her as I know it is something which she loves doing. Rosanna Steward


  • Sheila has been absolutely fantastic is helping me find information about my late Grandfather. like many, the history is very complex and information is very limited. Sheila has been there to answer any question that "randomly" come to me. Sheila's passion and interest in family and social history is evident and take a real interest. Katrina Munson-Alcock

  • I would highly recommend this service. Sheila Herd has done a incredible job researching my great grandfather who was untraceable until Sheila's involvement. Excellent job Sheila. David Green

  • I would like to say thankyou to Sheila Herd for doing my family tree. I was amazed at the presentation of the album and how beautiful it looked. I would very highly recommend Sheila to anyone if they are thinking about having this done she's fabulous and has a great wealth of knowledge all self taught. Lovely company and thanks for the coffee. Will keep in touch always. Sue Linfield
