Welcome to my business blog about the two shires that i specialise in with my Genealogy and Family History research company Leicestershire Ancestors!

I am based right next to the main A5 road which pretty much divides Leicestershire and Warwickshire as a county border. It is an ideal location to visit either Leicestershire Record Office at Wigston, Warwickshire Record Office in Warwick or local Family History Centres in North Warwickshire!

I started my Family History research in 1996 with regular visits to the Leicestershire Record Office doing purely personal research but it got me to the point where my knowledge was good enough to help others. In 2010 i began to take on paid work for others and have grown from there.

My speciality is research into the Battle of Waterloo and the records of the Great War 1914 – 1918. I would love to work with you to fill in those gaps with your Ancestors lives and help you if you have a particularly difficult brickwall!
