Bring your history to life
I'm a family history sleuth
I am passionate about the past and have discovered my roots. I would love to help you find yours and solve your historical puzzles. I can assure you that tracing your ancestors will be a fascinating personal journey, and l would relish the opportunity of being a part of that journey. I provide a professional family history research service to bring your ancestors back to life.
If you are intrigued about your ancestry but have never started the search, my services are available for hire. Alternatively, if you have been a family history researcher for years but need a little help to find an elusive ancestor, set me a challenge. I am a thorough, meticulous and reliable family history researcher.
Genealogy is the study of the past members of a family, with your pedigree being a single direct line backward from yourself. Family History is the means of bringing genealogy alive. Family History develops this list of names to discover when, where and how your ancestors lived, worked and travelled and to reveal the triumphs and tragedies that occurred. As a historian, l will then place the events within your ancestor’s story into the context of the social, economic and historical world in which they lived.
Each individual is a product of their ancestry. Living in Australia, we descend from ancestors whose actions and decisions have determined where we are today. The upheaval and challenges faced by our ancestors deserve acknowledgement, and family history is vitally important to keep their memory alive.
Introducing two new services:
your family is your story
Have you researched your family
history and want to share your story?
Do your relatives get bored with
the endless streams of genealogical reports?
Would you prefer to share your research in story format, but are hesitant to put pen to paper?
I can bring your research to life by writing your story. I will help you develop your list of names to discover when, where and how your ancestors lived, worked and travelled and to reveal the triumphs and tragedies that occurred. As a historian, l will then place the events within your ancestor’s story into the context of the social, economic and historical world in which they lived.
