Tracing Your Caribbean Family History
Family History Research is On the Increase
I have been tracing my family roots for over twenty five years. Eventually, people started to ask about their own family roots and so I begun running workshops in my local community and eventually in London, Preston, Leeds and other cities.
It has been said that the average family spends between £400 and £700 per year on genealogy research.
And that doesn't include people who travel far and wide to trace their ancestry. Neither does it include the cost of taking a DNA test which can cost from £89 to £500.

In-depth Family History Research
At some point along your journey, you may need the services of a Family History Researcher.
I specialise in Jamaican family history and can carry out research from a basic level (grandparent and great-grandparent records) to more advanced levels (accessing slave records, wills, property details, etc).
For more information about this important service, please contact me by clicking here, or read on.
For more information about the family history research I undertake, the following might be helpful.
My prices range from £60 (three hours research) to £500 (up to twenty hours research).

Family History Workshops
I am available to deliver talks and workshops anywhere in the UK or via Zoom, Teams, etc.
As a writer and historian, I know how important it is for families to leave legacies for the next generation.
Many families are now seeking to leave something in writing that can be left for future generations to read and pass on to their descendants.
I can offer to write a book, or a family history album (with photos, family tree, stories from and about family members, maps and descriptions of your parish or district, etc) about your family's history.
