    In much the same way as I arrived on the planet, I came to genealogy through a ‘chance encounter’ – a task set for me by my beloved father to unearth the identity of his birth parents.
    What started out as a labour of love has since turned into an obsession upon which I spend most of my waking hours – and a fair number of those when I’m supposed to be asleep!
    Following a long career in banking, I spent 5 years studying with the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, Canterbury and have been awarded both the Higher Certificate in Genealogy and the Diploma in Genealogy.
    I am an AGRA associate, a member of the Register of Qualified Genealogists and the Society of Genealogists and am actively involved locally with the Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group.
