About Us

"We are all ghosts. We all carry, inside us, people who came before us" - Liam Callanan

Yorkshire Family History has provided quality genealogical expertise for more than 40 years.

Commercials for some of the large subscription databases indicate that genealogical research is easy - you simply 'type in' what you already know and the database will do the rest! Those ads may sell subscriptions but are incredibly misleading. Getting beyond that 'low hanging fruit' is not so easy as suggested - collecting the records and data needed to delineate a family tree accurately requires time, organisation and informed researching. Records are available from many places, including many non-Internet sources, therefore finding them can never be a 'one-stop shopping experience'.

The wealth of research experience which has been attained by our resident professional is at your disposal and whilst we fully embrace use of the Internet to assist in our investigations, our vast research experience predates the Internet by many years, therefore we are equally at home in the research of original documentation deposited at the many archival repositories within the county and beyond. Serious researchers will always look beyond the Internet in search of original records...learn how we can help you discover your Yorkshire Ancestors.

Many years of experience by our research professional together with localized access to a countrywide network of national, county and local archival repositories is at our disposal to assist us in tracing your family tree.

Our professional approach to researching your family history means that we make full use of all available genealogical resources and techniques both old and new and in this regard Yorkshire Family History offers first class expertise in the field of genealogical research.

At Yorkshire Family History we provide a high-quality, professional research service for anyone with Yorkshire ancestry...a wide choice of research projects is available.
