Do you want to know more about your family history ?

​You don't know where to start with your research or maybe you have started but have hit a brick wall?

You would like further details about what your family were up to where they lived in Great Britain going back to the 18th century and beyond.

With a combination of genealogical experience, online and archive resources Wakefield based Ancestral Enquiries offer a number of services:

  • Family Trees. Research and build your family tree using a variety of sources.

  • Brickwalls. Resolve 'brickwalls' where there appear to be no options or too many options for potential ancestors for the previous generation.

  • Family Tree review and verification. You may have already completed some research but would like your research reviewed and verified. I will carry out a review of your research, identify any issues and provide suggestions for rectifying them.

  • Family Tree research advice. You may be confident to enough to do your own research but would like some one to one advice. I can offer this by email, Zoom or in person (subject to location).

I am within easy travelling distance of the five main West Yorkshire Archives at Wakefield, Leeds, Bradford, Kirklees and Calderdale.

To find out about your family history I will use a wide range of records to uncover details of:


  • Birth, baptism, marriage, deaths and burial records.

  • Where they lived at various dates including maps.

  • Occupational information.

  • Details of their siblings, parents and children including information about infant deaths

  • Military records.

  • Criminal activity.


Once the family history research is complete I will provide the following:


  • A detailed written report showing the findings and explaining the records and their purpose.

  • Screenshots of documents found with transcriptions within the report or an appendix

  • A drop line hand drawn family tree.

  • Details of searches carried out including those that produced no results.

  • A list of sources and citations used.

  • Recommendations for further research.

  • All files from screenshots that appear in the report
