Abbey Family History - Genealogist

While in the process of tracing a record in the 1861 Census, I was astonished to find the ancestors of 3 of my clients living within a few door of each other!

Some of our stories

Its a small world!

With the advent of DNA testing, it is now suddenly possible to break down the brick walls. Adoptions and illegitimacy are particularly problematic. However, through the power of DNA testing I have linked clients with family they never thought they would ever find!

DNA is the key!

I always say to clients that they will almost certainly have family in the past who moved around the country. I was nearly proved wrong with one client, whose Family tree stretched back 180 years before I found an ancestor outside her hometown of Dudley!
