Jacqui Kirk is a professional genealogist/local history researcher with Montague Cottage Research and a representative on the National Archives User Advisory Group. She believes in helping others to research their local and family history and feels that family history is not always about the people in your tree but also about the places they lived.



After more than 10 years as a professional genealogist I have finally retired and no longer carry out genealogical research for clients. I have enjoyed carrying out research projects and uncovering varied and interesting families and would like to thank all my clients for inviting me along with them on their journeys of discovery. Client files will all be deleted over the coming year.

Whilst I will continue as a local and family history speaker after my retirement, in the light of Covid-19 I have decided that I will no longer carry out in-person speaking engagements but will be happy to deliver virtual talks and workshops on request from 2022 onwards.
