I have been researching my own family history for over twenty years, ever since my Grandmother inherited a mourning ring with an inscription on it. During 2021 and 2022 I studied for The Family History Skills and Strategies Intermediate Certificate with Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Limited, passing with Distinction. I am also studying with Strathclyde University for a Postgraduate Certificate in Genealogy, Palaeography and Heraldry. Now as well as being the Events and Education Manager at the Society of Genealogists I enjoy researching the history of families and homes. I am an AGRA Associate and a student member of the Register of Qualified Genealogists.

Ruth has worked hard to research my family history. It’s not been an easy task as my family comes from Ireland & we had no idea whereabouts or when my ancestors moved to York. Ruth has researched deeply into into the records of the census over the years. What has been intriguing has been how the family moved around York & who both Grandparents & my father lived with. I had picked up some stories from them but no clear backup to the stories. Ruth has provided a family tree as well as scans of documents to back her research up.I’m very grateful to Ruth for doing all the research & I would recommend her to anyone who wants to find out their family history. - Paul, York
