Why pay a researcher?
There are a number of reasons why someone may utilise the services of a professional researcher including
- You don’t have the time to research your own family tree,
- You are unsure where to start
- You don’t live locally to the archives
- You have completed the bare bones of your tree via online databases but want to add some detail to understand more about your ancestor’s lives.
As more and more information birth, marriage, death and census information has gone online it is easier to track names and dates however the real stories behind our ancestor’s lives often remain hidden in the local newspapers or in documents in local archives. I can help you if you are stuck on with your online searches and also if you want to delve deeper in the archives and find out what other information might be available on your ancestors lives and the places they lived and worked.
One of the benefits of utilising an independent researcher is the ability to search a range of sources in different collections.
If you do want to travel to the area but feel a bit daunted and are not sure where to go or which archives to visit I can provide an individually tailored itinerary or accompany you to the archives to get you started.
If you want to go ahead with the research please email with your enquiry.
