We can do research for the whole of England & Wales for the 19th and 20th centuries, but also specialise earlier family history records for ancestors who lived in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Sussex, or in the London area.
If you do not live in south-east England, we are well placed to visit the county archives in Winchester, Woking, Southampton, Chichester, Reading and the major archives in London to search for pre-1837 records, many of which cannot be found on the internet.
Have you hit a brick wall in your own research? We would be happy to advise and help on possible research solutions to finding that elusive birth, marriage or burial record of an ancestor.
Alternatively, buy research time for a friend or family or a family history investigation as a gift.
What records can you consult?
Subscription genealogy websites have their limits - we can consult a range of original and specialist records only available in county record offices.
If you ancestor was a pauper or illegitimate we can look in poor law and parish records.
We can hunt for old wills and can transcribe the old and difficult handwriting.
We can search for old records like deeds to help trace the history of your house.
We can look at other records for you, for example, school records, manorial records, employment records, tax records, military records, and many more types of document that may contain useful genealogical information.
If you ancestor was a soldier, sailor or airman we can research their military records and other details about their service career e.g. in the First World War.
No research commission is too large or too small. We can do a simple look-up in a parish register at a local county record office, to a full surname investigation and complex family history research involving different original sources.
