We specialise in researching family histories in the West of Scotland
Although genealogy is seen as a hobbie for most people, genealogy/ family history are very much tied into the local history of towns and villages accross Scotland. As genealogical service we can research owners of companies and explore larger family connections among other firms.
Recently we under took a project for Renfrewshire Council, carrying out initial research on 6 people from Paisley’s past looking at their family history, where their businesses were based and provided a report on further possible investigations that could be carried out.
