Our researchers of many years experience, with a long standing commitment to providing excellent service, ensure that personal service whatever the task. 

Our Experience Shows!

Our partners, Janet Bishop and Ian Marson, have a wealth of expertise covering all aspects of research throughout the UK. Through years of running research practices in England and Scotland, both have built up a heritage and vision that has led to accreditations with The Association of Genealogists and Researchers (AGRA) in Archives and the Association of Scottish Genealogists and Researchers in Archives (ASGRA). Janet and Ian have served as council members and also had chairmanship of their respective organisations. Janet still serves as chair of ASGRA council and Ian was elected a fellow of AGRA in 2013.
