Unique family tree displays

Buy a unique gift for the genealogist in your family.

Expert genealogy research

Find out about your ancestors' lives.

Your one stop genealogy shop, from research to family tree display!

I offer three different services:

1-2-1 Online Tuition for Beginners

Launched in January 2022, I now offer 1-2-1 online tuition for beginners and those that want to do a ‘do over’.  All workshops are recorded, so you can watch them again and again as and when you need a refresher on a particular part of your research.  Find out more here or go straight to my shop.

Family History Research

Would you like to find out more about your ancestors but don’t have the time or the skills?  I can research your ancestors going back to 1800 (if records allow).  I will produce a written report and a traditional pedigree (family tree) on paper.  Find out more here.

Family Tree Display

Are you looking for a unique gift to celebrate a special occasion?  I am passionate about displaying your family history in unusual ways.  How about a set of tablemats displaying your family tree?  Or a mug and coaster set with the 32 surnames of your great, great, great grandparents?  I can embroider your ancestors’ surnames onto bags, cushion covers, aprons and more!  Find out more here or go straight to my shop.

I started The Crafty Genealogist in the summer of 2018.  In the 1990s I worked in a military museum.  I gained a Master of Arts degree in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester in 1999.  I started researching my own family tree in 2009 by visiting relatives, collecting oral histories and scanning photographs.  Since 2016 I have spent time researching the tree and have traced one line back to 1780s.  Find out more on my ‘About Me’ page.
