Although I have been researching my own family history for over twenty years it has taken the Covid-19 lockdowns and approaching eighteen months of furlough to finally put a website together.

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
