Patricia Marks Family Historian
I provide a family history research service for those who don't have the time to do it themselves. I am very flexible and will do as much or as little as the client wants. The results of research can be 'packaged' in a variety of ways if you want to surprise a friend or family member with a unique gift for example for a marriage or a special anniversary. Gift vouchers are also available. I also teach those who want to do their own research but lack the skills needed to do so. Currently in development is a digital learning programme which will give students more flexibility. I have never had a client who has not been impacted in some way by going on their own ancestral journey. Family history is a very special gift which you can pass on to family and the generations still to come.
Following a long career in local authority services, I have now turned my 25 year hobby of genealogy and family history research into a business. I am passionate about what I do; it has brought a new dimension into my life and also some closure. My work involves a lot of reading and heavy duty computer work so I try to balance that out by knitting, sewing and embroidering, all of which are very relaxing. I am also a big sports fan; cricket and tennis, closely followed by rugby and athletics. I am very sad; one of the first jobs I do at New Year is to plot out sporting fixtures for the year in my diary, just to make sure I don't miss anything!
