My experience

My university studies covered the research of family and community history. I also studied ancient to modern building technologies.

I have personally researched at Tyne and Wear Archives, County Durham Record Office, the National Archives at Kew, the London based Society of Genealogists, the Berkshire and Wiltshire Archives and the Scottish National Archives in Edinburgh. In Australia I have researched in the State Library of New South Wales and the Queensland State Archives and State Library. 

My research covered 18th Century Naval careers in maritime records,  the advent of the Kennet & Avon canal system in Berkshire, non-Conformist marriages in Aberdeen in the mid 1800's, the First Settlers in South Australia in the 1830's and the adventures of a Geordie ship-worker who became a roaming journalist and later private secretary to various politicians during WW1 in New South Wales, Australia.
