Get answers with Ancestry DNA testing

I specialise in DNA testing advice, interpreting your test & using your Ancestry DNA matches to break brick walls or identify your biological family. Find out where your ancestors came from, get an ethnicity estimate & find cousins you didn’t know you had. Has your DNA test thrown you a curve ball or are you an adoptee seeking answers? I can help!

Breathe life into your ancestors

I provide professional written reports and official documentation on your family and ancestral lines & can help in solving enthralling family mysteries! Unlike other genealogists, I help you to “meet” your ancestors, giving you far more than just boring names and dates. I seek out the stories, pictures, mug shots, places & social context so you get a real sense of who they were!
