Formally a Senior Consultant in a UK Government Department, I am now a London based Genealogy Consultant and a member of the Society of Genealogists.
I have undertaken genealogy research in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States, although my main area of expertise is in all aspects of UK Genealogy.
My own genealogical journey started more than three decades ago with a chance find of a photograph. In the years since then I have continually expanded my abilities and knowledge, growing my genealogical expertise with personal research and study, along with a healthy dose of old-fashioned, hands-on genealogy research.
Over the years, my research has taken me to some strange and varied locations, even down a coal mine! It is these experiences - the good, the bad and sometimes ugly - that have resulted in the expertise I now have. And it is this expertise that I am offering you.
My original quest into my own family history gave me a great feeling of accomplishment, huge respect for my ancestors, and a feeling of belonging to, and having my own place in history. My goal is to help others achieve these same feelings by aiding them in their quest for family knowledge through my genealogy consultant services.

By far the most popular choice as it allows you to ‘keep a lid’ on costs, this package can be especially helpful for;
• Those wanting a single line or single person research
• Those wanting assistance to break down a ‘brick wall’
• Those wanting to give genealogy a go without signing up to an expensive package
This package is charged at an hourly rate of £12 and requires a minimum deposit of £25.
This package traces your two direct lines, Paternal and Maternal, as far back as accessible records allow.
This package is charged at £150 and requires a minimum deposit of £50.
This package also traces your two direct lines back as far as accessible records allow, with the benefit of additional information about other family members such as siblings, Aunts, Uncles etc.
This package is charged at £250 and requires a minimum deposit of £80.
This package is best suited to those requiring older, more unusual research. It is ideal for those wanting not just the roots of their tree but the branches, twigs and offshoots!
Due to the bespoke nature of this research, prices would be assessed on individual application.
• Come with a full report showing as much detail as possible about your ancestors. The report will also show all source information used.
• Any certificates, document copies or other disbursements would be at additional charge (cost price) to any package but would not be made without your prior approval.
• If, during the course of your project, I find that continued research is not possible, I will inform you immediately and the cost of your project will be amended accordingly. Should that happen, a minimum charge of £25 would be retained from your deposit to cover the cost of the research already undertaken.
Payment can be made by cheque (UK clients only) or PayPal.
Eileen was so enthusiastic and kept in touch about what was happening answering any questions I had. The report she produced was far more detailed and interesting than I expected it to be. Thank You" — Rebecca Wade "Eileen has assisted me with my own family research many times. The exceptional thing about Eileen is her passion for the subject. This, along with her absolute joy in helping others discover their story, makes the experience of reading Eileen work a real delight."
"I had my aunts tree done for her 80th birthday. She absolutely loved it as, until then, she knew nothing about her father except his name and profession. She now knows details of her fathers family going back to 1790!!!! Thank you"
"I left England more than 25 years ago but recently became curious about my roots when I saw a UK family tree program. I contacted Eileen and went with the 'pay as you go' package within just 3 hours she had found the names of four generations of my family. I am now considering the Ancestor Hunt package."
