Ancestry and Heirs

Summary Tab

Family is important to all of us but over time families become disconnected from each other. This can be for many reasons. Children with no siblings can become distanced from cousins, some people never marry and some of those who do marry never have children of their own. People may emigrate losing touch with their English relatives they have left behind. This was the same for our ancestors, who traveled much more than many people think, making it difficult to trace back our family trees. Ancestry and Heirs are able to help you trace your family ancestry, with a particular expertise in Kent ancestry. Knowing your ancestors does not change your life, you might have noble ancestry or descend from the workers of the land, but knowledge about them gives richness to your family history and provides stories to tell your children and grandchildren. Ancestry and Heirs endeavour to research your ancestry going back in time from the present day to the early 1800s and many times beyond. Using census records along with birth, baptism, marriage and death records a picture of your ascendants is slowly built up to provide knowledge of your family tree. Ancestry and Heirs is owned by me, Nikki Paine. I have recently completed my Masters in Genealogy, Paleography and Heraldry with Strathclyde University at Merit, a highly recognised qualification in genealogy that shows competence in genealogical research. Prior to this I worked as a qualified nurse for 19 years and then spent 15 years in Further Education, teaching and managing the health and care curriculum. I also have a BA (Hons) in Post Compulsory Education. I was adopted as a baby and in adulthood became interested in knowing the family history of my birth parents. This quickly became addictive and a love of genealogical research was born. I have traced my living relatives, and have also found that my paternal ancestors were hard working coal miners for generations and one of them lived at the illustrious address of No. 6 Bog Row! Although no fortunes are hidden in my family tree I was proud to find them all hard working, striving for a better life for their own children, something which I have done for my own two sons. Ancestry and Heirs is registered with the Information Commissioners Office for Data Processing under the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 and will not share your information with anyone without your permission.
