Family Tree Tales has been created as a space to explore the stories uncovered in over 30 years of researching family trees.  Here you will be able to read the stories uncovered while searching out elusive ancestors; stories about the people and places from the past and about some of the less well known ways to search these people out.

They didn’t live their lives just to make it easy or convenient for us to find out about them, but sometimes the most interesting – and obscure – person or fact can be found in unusual or unexpected places.

Not all the tales are happy, nor do they all have positive outcomes, but that is the nature of research – particularly when looking into your family tree.

I am a professional genealogist and family historian, contact me for help to find your family tree tales and the stories that make you who you are.
