Border Memories

Let me guide you on your family history journey


About Me

Fascinated by family stories, I started my own family history journey as a teenager. I went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts in History from St. Stephen University (Canada) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Local and Family History from Oxford University (England).

On my own family history journey, I have researched records in Canada, England, Wales, and Scotland. For the last three years, I have worked at the Scottish Borders Archives perfecting my skills in Scottish Ancestry research. I would be happy to help you with your own family history whether you are looking for advice, how to get started, or a research package.

Grant was really surprised when he opened the book on his family tree, he knew his Grandfather and Grandmother came from Berwick but had no idea about his relations coming from Hexham it made interesting reading.
