After gaining my degree from London University, I went on to take a postgraduate Diploma in Information Science at the City University. I then worked in an academic library for 23 years, as a literature researcher and publications editor.
During this time I began to apply my professional skills to researching my own family history. In 2000 I was one of the prize-winners in the Millennium competition to write a 5-generation family history organised by the Institute of Heraldic & Genealogical Studies.
I became a full-time family history researcher in 2007, joining AGRA soon afterwards. AGRA (the Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives) is the main professional body for genealogists in England & Wales, promoting the highest standards and setting a Code of Conduct. In 2010 I was accepted by the AGRA Board of Assessors as a full Member of AGRA. From 2013-2016 I served on AGRA’s governing Council, and after a year’s break have now returned.
I am registered under the Data Protection Act with the Information Commissioner’s Office, and any personal information you send me will be treated in the strictest confidence.
You can be assured of receiving a personal and friendly service at all times. I take a pride in the quality of my work and will make every effort to ensure you are happy with the service you receive.
