Tracing Ghosts started out as a place to compile research on my own family tree, but now contains all sorts of research I have undertaken, from local history to other kinds of genealogical projects which spark my interest (see contents to the right or menu above).
I first discovered genealogy in 1987 when I undertook a school project to produce a family tree. I even tea-stained the paper and burn the edges to make the document look old and authentic! Then in 2005 I rediscovered genealogy via my partner who was tracing his own family tree, and after digging out my old family tree project was soon hooked. It was after helping a friend research her ancestors I realised that I enjoyed tracing other peoples trees just as much as my own.
I am available to HIRE if you need help trace your full or partial tree, or even just certain people. I can also check over DNA results to find common ancestors.
