Quandary Genealogy

Summary Tab

Biography:
Genealogy is my third career. After graduating with a BA in History I worked in publishing and at the Geological Society of London. Following a career break to bring up four children, I obtained an MSc in Computer Science and worked for a blue chip company in IT Strategy and Consulting. In 2003 I returned to my first love of history and researching my own family background. This resulted in discovering a connection with Jamaica that no-one in the family knew about, and ended with my publishing "A Parcel of Ribbons" a collection of eighteenth century family letters written between England and Jamaica. I also set up a website of the same name to publish some of the stories and information I had come across while working on the book. So I decided to turn a private obsession into helping others. In 2015 I enrolled on the Postgraduate Diploma in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies with the University of Strathclyde, obtaining the qualification in 2017 and setting up Quandary Genealogy (which is named after our home "The Quandary", set in a small Derbyshire village).
