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.


When I first started to look at who could help me research my family tree, it quickly became apparent that there were lots of companies out there on the internet who could offer what is basically an ‘off the shelf report’ for what appears to be relatively low cost and probably little reward at the end of the day. I was looking for something more, a professional well qualified researcher who could produce a bespoke piece of work and Karen has certainly met my expectations. The document Karen produced for my family is well written, presented and clearly researched. I have no hesitation in recommending Karen if you want a family tree you can hand down to your own family and keep for future generations as I did.
