Family History Research, specialising in Gloucestershire

We are a small family business, created nearly thirty years ago, here to help you with your research, particularly in our county of Gloucestershire.  Elizabeth Jack, (Liz as she is known), is now acting mainly as a consultant, whilst concentrating on her own family history and a couple of local history projects.  Trisha Phillips, her niece, now chief researcher; has many years of research experience and a vast knowledge of our county and its archives which she can use to help shed light on your family’s Hidden Heritage.

Check out our Research page to see what can be done to help you discover more about your ancestors, the way they lived, how they worked and where they worshipped, etc..  We aim to uncover the hidden facts and events which will bring your family history to life. No task is too small or too large.

Do you want to know more about our beautiful county?  Have a look at our Gloucestershire pages to discover some places to visit, what to do whilst here, see pictures of the area and find out more about our organisations, events and traditions.

Do you need to do some background reading to find out more about life, past and present, in our county?  Check out the Books page to find details of books produced by Liz, books written by others about people and places in Gloucestershire, essential reference books for the county and genealogical books in general.

Many years ago, we produced a photographic CD of mugshots of some prisoners held in Gloucester Gaol with details of their crimes.  Find this for sale on the Store page as well as a link to copies of old tithe, enclosure and estate maps produced by Geoff Gwatkin;  you will, of course, also find details of our own books.

Finally we have Liz’s genealogical Articles pages with comments from her on items of interest to anyone seeking their ancestors in Gloucestershire.
