I have been researching family history for over 10 years and completed an MSc in Genealogical, Palaeographic & Heraldic Studies at the University of Strathclyde. I specialise in family and social history of Sussex, Kent and Surrey, an area I know well.
I am using this blog to share research into my own family tree as well as general news and views from the world of genealogy. My family tree is based in Sussex, mainly East Sussex around Dallington, Burwash and Heathfield with parts of family based in Cuckfield and Slaugham, West Sussex and other parts on the Surrey, Sussex, Kent border in Lingfield, Edenbridge and East Grinstead.
My father’s family however buck the trend, they came from Hackney in Middlesex with lines coming from Norfolk and Devon and recently discovered – France.
