After more than 10 years as a professional genealogist I am reducing my workload as I prepare to retire in 2021.

As a result I will not be taking on any new clients in 2020 as I aim to complete all existing projects by the end of March 2021.

I will gradually be notifying former clients that their files will be deleted in the course of this year and of course carrying out small follow-up or tidy- up projects for them.

I have enjoyed my work over the last 10 years and the varied and interesting families I have uncovered and would like to thank all my clients for inviting me along with them on their journeys of discovery.

I will continue as a local and family history speaker and will be at The Genealogy Show at the NEC in Birmingham at the end of June giving a talk on tracing railway ancestors.
