One To One Tuition

I help people who want to learn how to research their family history. This can be done by showing you how to use the ScotlandsPeople database at the Centre in Edinburgh or to help you when you hit a brick wall.  I will not do the research for you but will point you in the right direction and make suggestions on how to progress with your research.

What My Customers Say

“Can I start by saying how delighted I am with it. I think that you have done a fabulous job in investigating and exploring the detail behind my family history. I didn’t expect to be provided with so much information and all backed up by evidential documentation, it is really interesting for me and the rest of my family – even the arrest for “rowdy behaviour”! Unfortunately, I don’t hale from a French chateau with adjoining vineyards and yet somehow I had a sneaky feeling that Ireland would be discovered as our family’s source. Just as well that, after Scotland, Ireland have always been the sports team that I want to do well.

A really great job Sarah, thank you very much.”
