One to One Genealogy Tuition
Use a “hands on” approach to learn how to trace your own family history, including using DNA results.
Are you tired of trying to do it all by yourself?
- You’ve tried learning using books, blogs and even videos but it’s time consuming, info is hard to retain and applying it in practice is even harder!
- You’re sick to death of constantly pausing your research in order to post complex queries on Facebook Groups.
- You wish you could just show someone your problem, explaining it face to face is so much easier than trying to write it down.
- You’re worried you’ve wasted your money subscribing to genealogy sites because you’ve just ended up with trees that only contain names and dates – no stories.
- You’ve spent £80+ on DNA tests and you don’t know what to do next.
- You want lessons but not the commitment of having to attend a class every week.
- Your time is limited and you want to trace your family history, whilst you learn.
- You feel that learning should be fun. Just listening or reading is not enough. You want a personal, interactive experience.
Relax, grab a glass of vino or a mug of tea. We’ll trace your tree together, delve into DNA and find your unique family history.

How does it work and what's included?
Over a cosy Zoom call (bring a glass of wine or a cuppa) we’ll define your research goals.
I’ll let you know what websites you need to subscribe to (both paid and free) so that you are fully prepared for your lessons.
We’ll plan in the first lesson over Zoom and start researching your family tree together – or delving into your DNA results!
I’ll bring my years of experience to your unique family history, sharing not just what I know but how to find the answers for yourself.
After each lesson we’ll agree when to schedule in the next session. This means we can flex lessons around waiting for documents to arrive or weeks where you want to research by yourself.
Each session will be recorded so you don’t need to try to take notes whilst you are learning.
You’ll be able to progress your family tree or analyse your DNA matches whilst learning techniques that you can apply to future research.
