About Ancestral Stories – how a pastime in genealogy became a passion and now a profession

Graham Hicks, genealogist and family history researcher

My interest in genealogy started over thirty years ago when a favourite Aunt died. I found myself researching her family and before I knew it I was hooked. Over the years what was a pastime became a passion and now I want to share this with others who may not have the time to research their own family history or live too far away from certain Record Offices to research for themselves.


You may of course have come up against a ‘brick wall’ and need some help to find a way around it.  Now with eight years professional experience behind me I feel confident that I can help you drive your research forward.
