I have been a professional genealogist since 1987. I formerly worked for 21 years for a leading London firm of forensic genealogists, where I was Head of Research until 2009. Currently, I work part-time for a major British family history website. I am the owner of Bluebird Research.

My interests include Slavic history, Russian literature and travel in Eastern Europe.


I provide specialist family history research services across Eastern Europe, including the Balkans, Greece and Russia (with Siberia). I also undertake genealogical research in Cyprus and Egypt (Greek communities only) and in Armenia. For more information click here
