Local Archive Research
I can carry out research for you at Bury and Bolton Archives (archives in surrounding areas in Lancashire and Manchester subject to discussion and mileage costs).
You will receive a written report on the sources consulted on your behalf and any information found. I can order copies of any relevant records on your behalf where applicable.
I use various free and subscription sites which provide records for England, Scotland and Wales.
Again, you will receive a report listing the sites consulted and any information found. Copies of any relevant records may be provided if permissible under copyright.
To illustrate your family story, I can provide photographs of local features such as churches, gravestones, schools or streets where they still exist.
