Genealogy is one of the UK’s fastest growing industries, thanks in part to popular TV shows such as the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? and, of course, period dramas such as Downton Abbey. After all, everybody longs to know whether their ancestors were from “upstairs” or “downstairs”!
Genealogy is a fascinating subject, but exceptionally time consuming and often difficult and frustrating. That’s what we are here for! Not only can we successfully interpret historical records and trace hundreds of your ancestors, we are also able to delve much further into history, offering you a glimpse into your past. In short, we can provide you with an enlightening experience that can change your life.
You may learn some surprising things about your heritage, and even meet the skeletons that were once locked tightly away in the closet!
