Hertfordshire County Record Office, UK ; London Metropolitan Archives, London, England ; National Archives at Kew, London, England

I am the author of seven books on family history research.

Easy Family History (published by The National Archives in October 2005) is a beginner's guide to researching family history in England and Wales. It has sold over 10,000 copies.

In September 2008, I co-wrote (with Peter Christian) the definitive guide to using and understanding the UK's census returns - Census: The Expert Guide.

I am a regular contributor to a variety of UK family history magazines including Ancestors and Your Family History.

'Dave Annal has been meticulous, thorough and his results extraordinarily prompt and his report concise detailed and backed up by documentary evidence. I could not have asked for more and got more than I asked for!'

Gerry Blandford, September 2010

'Throughout the project Dave from Lifelines kept in touch frequently and delivered an excellent report at the end of the research. I have received very good value for money and now I am trying to engage Dave's services again to research another chapter of my family history. Thanks again Dave much appreciated Ray'

Ray Chester, January 2010

'The content and delivery of your talk were superb, and undoubtedly presented food for thought to even those experienced researchers in the audience. You gave fresh insight and material with which to tackle those "brick walls" and "dead-ends" that family historians are so keen to talk about. Greatly appreciated'

Oxfordshire Family History Society, May 2009

'You have totally made my day!! I am so delighted with what you have found.'

Rosemary Smith, November 2010

'Fantastic job! Dave found the answer within two hours and I had searched for over a month. Thanks Dave!'

Dick Mortieau, February 2010

'We are still talking about you and your talk of last night. Probably the best presentation we have had. Really very professional and thoroughly appreciated'
