Are you ever curious about your family background? Do you wonder who your ancestors were and what their lives were like? Do you secretly wonder if there are hidden gems of information to discover or a black sheep of the family who took off to seek their fortune? And do you ever say to yourself ‘I wish someone could find my family tree for me?’
Family history is a window to the past, a chance to understand who we are and what our origins are. An ancestry search is in turn both fascinating and addictive, but never dull.
I began my own personal family history journey more than 45 years ago and I can still feel the thrill of discovering something new, or finding another missing link on the tree. I have shed a tear over the babies lost or ancestors who died in the workhouse, and admired lovers who sneaked away to marry at the Register Office without parental consent. Over the years I have helped many others on their family research journey and I would love to help you too.
Discover Your Past offers a professional and yet friendly service, which can be as basic or as detailed as you wish. Some will only want to know names and dates, but others want to know about siblings, about occupations and places where the family lived. You decide how detailed you wish the research to be, and the line you wish to pursue.
