Family history research and location photography in North West England, North East Wales and beyond

Based in the North West of England but covering the whole of the United Kingdom, Ancestral Stories offer a range of family history research services that cover the needs of family historians at home and abroad. I recognise that all research requests stem from different starting points. You may live hundreds of miles from a particular record office, or of course live overseas and never have the opportunity to do your own ‘hands on’ research in the UK. So conducting your own research may, in reality, simply not be cost effective. On the other hand you may live near to a repository, but in a busy world you do not have the time to go. Whatever your motivation is, I can help you achieve your research goal.


By consulting with me you are under absolutely no obligation whatsoever to commission my services. I will want to talk through with you what it is you want me to research for you. If after this consultation you do want to commission my services I offer a free initial 1 hour ‘desk top’ search to kick start the research. So what ever your area of interest, please contact me so we can discuss a suitable way forward.
