I began researching the history of my family about 30 years ago. To start with it was a very on and off project but as time went on I grew more and more fascinated by our ancestors and spent more and more time finding out about them. And then other people started to ask if I could look for their families too. I love researching and finding out about the people who made us what we are. Not everyone can claim royalty or any sort of notoriety in their family's past but we all have intriguing people who make up our story. Most of these people are ordinary, hard working individuals. Some battled against great odds to live their lives; some travelled great distances under terrible circumstances and yet others "bucked the trend", taking a course of action that changed their family's fortunes for ever - for better or worse. Everyone's family is peopled by individuals who, whether we like it or not, made their contributions to our own story. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies from Strathclyde University and I'm now working to complete an M.Sc.
