I provide a research service to publishers and other organisations who need complex or extended research work, particularly in the fields of Scottish and local history. I am an experienced and thorough researcher, with a PhD in Scottish history and a deep knowledge and understanding of Scottish historical sources and resources.

I have successfully researched my own local and family history projects, and produced three books on local history topics, and helped many others to answer their questions. I also teach research skills to life-long learning students at two universities.

Whatever your topic, I can efficiently and effectively identify and search records in Glasgow, Edinburgh and elsewhere in Scotland in support of your project. If you would like my help, please get in touch using the contact form.
