Family History Research in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex

Local archive research for private clients and professional genealogists

I take on commissions of all sizes, whether you have a large research project in mind, a specific one-off piece of research or simply require transcription of some parish registers.

Depending on the details it is usually appropriate to commission a set number of hours work after which I will report back to you and we can agree the next steps.

Please see the about me page for details of my experience and qualifications.

Based at the border of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex I am able to conduct research at a number of record offices without charging any travel costs:

  • Cambridgeshire Archives
  • Cambridge University Library
  • The Cambridgeshire Collection
  • Suffolk Record Office at Bury St Edmunds
  • Essex Archives

Travel charges for the Suffolk Record Offices at Ipswich and Lowestoft and research at other local record offices are calculated by mileage and further details are available on request. I will advise in advance of any costs associated with travel.

Please contact me with details of your requirements and I will provide a quotation at no cost.


I approached Karen to research my family ancestry back to my great-great grandparents.  It was for a Ruby anniversary gift to my parents who are avid followers of the TV programme 'Who Do You Think You Are?'.  I knew it would be a big project to undertake and expected there to be some blanks or gaps when it was compiled.  When the completed work arrived, it was well presented and the information extremely detailed and comprehensive.  It contained some interesting facts about our family members and their occupations that we were previously unaware of.  My parents are thrilled with the finished article and as there is so much detail, refer back to it from time to time.  I will definitely approach Karen again if I require further research to be carried out on my ancestry.
