Where do you come from? What stories lie in your family history? Have you ever wondered? Maybe you’ve hit a dead end in your research or just don’t know where to start.

I can help. Simply tell me what you know so far and I’ll not only give you research advice but will investigate your Scottish ancestry on your behalf. I’ll research your family history with commitment and enthusiasm, connecting the dots to form a real picture of who and where you come from.

As well as years of expertise in ancestral research, I’ve at my disposal a wide range of historical and genealogical resources including the ScotlandsPeople Centre in Edinburgh, local and private archives and online resources. Where possible I’ll visit the area where your ancestors lived and photograph their home, local church and headstone, offering you an insight into their lives.

On completion of my research, you’ll receive a comprehensive ancestral report. 

Full-day research at archives in Edinburgh along with a report detailing my findings is £250.00.

Full-day research at archives out with Edinburgh along with a report detailing my findings is £275.00 plus agreed travelling costs.

By undertaking research on your behalf, I cannot guarantee how much information can be sourced from the available records in the agreed timescale. Please note that the agreed fees are for my time, not for the information uncovered.

I’m registered with VisitScotland Ancestral Welcome Scheme and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG).

Do you want to walk in the footsteps of your ancestors?

I’ll design a tailor-made ancestral tour especially for you, taking you on a journey of discovery where you’ll connect with your Scottish ancestors by walking in their footsteps. Your ancestors will be brought to life when you learn about the people, places and traditions connected with them. By the end of the tour you’ll have gained a real insight into your ancestral heritage and where you came from, which you can share with present and future generations.

The cost of a full-day guided ancestral tour starts from £475.00 which includes all planning, tour guide and transport costs.
