Interested in local history and genealogy?
You are in the right place! You might like to take a look at my blog which I update as regularly as possible with intriguing people, themes or places. Most of these have a relevance to Norfolk and East Anglia, and they often feature characters from my own family tree.
If local photography is more up your street try my facebook page where you can view more of my photography (beyond that on my blog), and if you're up with social media, follow my twitter feed where I tweet local history stories, useful links and local information.
Need help beginning your family tree?
In my time I have researched for myself as well as clients and helped people start their family trees on a one to one basis, through articles, talks, drop in sessions and over email and social media. I have produced self-published research packages with diligent research and beautiful photographs and have a regular newspaper column. Recently, my first book has been published and I hope two more will follow next year.
For me, helping others research their own history has always been more enjoyable than researching on their behalf (although this is still a fabulous thing to do!). For this reason, I concentrate on writing while working full time in heritage and studying for my MSc in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies in my spare time. Hopefully through writing here, in local publications and helping people with queries I can aid your research without costing you a penny.
Where to go next...
The links at the top of this page will help you find out more about me, access my blog and other useful information for local historians and genealogists. I am happy to receive email enquiries which I will endeavour to respond to within three working days.
Please contact me at elizabeth@yourlocalhistory with any queries.
