Research at the National Archives, Kew and now also in East Sussex
- The National Archives (TNA) holds the records of central government of the UK from the Doomsday Book to the 20th century, as well as records of the law courts and naval, military and other records.
- I offer a one-off research service at TNA for those who cannot visit in person.
- I welcome enquiries about academic research and research for legal purposes.
Family History and Research in East Sussex
Having recently moved to Eastbourne, I now offer a limited personal research service at the new East Sussex Record Office in Falmer. I am currently working with only a handful of clients on large projects.
Other Archives in London and elsewhere
Research can be arranged in many other archives and libraries, as part of a large project. I no longer visit archives in person to do small amounts of research, although I am happy to recommend others who do so. If you need family history research there is an accredited list of researchers here:
Example of Collaborative Project Work
An extremely interesting project that I was very grateful to be involved with, was the fascinating story of the Anglesey Bonesetters. This involved some detailed genealogical research forward tracing descendants of two mysterious foreign boys washed up on a Welsh beach. You can read all about it here
