Welcome to West Yorkshire Lives


Family History Research
Ancestral lines can be traced back several generations providing details of names, significant events (BMD), occupations, addresses. 
Occupation Research
Depending on the occupations of your ancestors research can be undertaken to find out more about their working life.
House History Research
If you live in an old house research can be undertaken to find out about its history, who lived there before you and for how long.

Local and Social History
You may already know the names and basic information about your ancestors but want to find out more about the area they lived in.

You may have identified where your ancestors live or were buried and want to have a photograph of the location or gravestone.
For schools in the Bradford/ Leeds district we are working to develop workshops and resources to make history teaching more local.

Walking in your ancestors footsteps


If you want to visit the area to find out more about your ancestors I can organise an itinerary or tour that would take you to the places where your ancestors were lived.

Need a speaker?


Talks can be given on a range of subjects on the history of Bradford or the BradfordWW1 project.
