I provide historic research for private clients, professional researchers, academics and organisations. My services include family, local and house history research as well as problem-solving, transcription, writing up research, and archival photography. Using my social history skills and knowledge to add detail to my research. I am happy to assist research in the periods c.1500-1945. 

I visit archives across Britain including county record offices, university special collections and national institutions. I am on The National Archives' list of Independent Researchers. I also carry out online research. 

Additionally to my research work I teach at the University of York (home of the Borthwick Institute for Archives) where I am a history doctoral researcher. In February 2024 I was appointed Research Fellow at St Mary's University, Twickenham. I am also a tutor for Pharos Tutors, give talks to history organisations and serve as a Trustee of the British Association for Local History. 

Please get in touch if you think I might be able to help you. I am currently taking on new research work.
