If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
I'm an experienced amateur genealogist, having been researching my own family for over 25 years. I've delved into most of the common sources and some more specialised, and have written articles for the West Surrey FHS magazine. Most recentlly I have been "deciphering the Victorian photo album".
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
To find out more about how and where my ancestors lived.
