I am a professionally-qualified genealogist offering genealogy and family history research services to people whose ancestors lived in Somerset, Devon and other counties in the south west of England.
People without relevant formal qualifications offering paid family history research services may have many years' experience, but their competence and overall knowledge of genealogical sources have not been independently assessed. I have studied for and been awarded a Diploma in Genealogy, an advanced qualification demonstrating a thorough knowledge of sources and techniques and the expertise to carry out professional research for clients, whatever the background of their ancestors. I am also a member of AGRA, providing further assurance of my competence and integrity, and have many satisfied clients, as illustrated on the testimonials page.
As well as details of my services as a professional genealogist, there is also information on this website about my research into the ancestry of William Davenport, an ancestor of Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge.
