For the last ten years I have been trying to finish my family research. My sister and I live in Australia and the relatives we were looking for lived in England, so an extended visit gave us the chance to finalise some of our searches. We found Peter Clifford of Forefathers on the Internet and found him to be a sensitive and efficient researcher.

Within days of our first conversation information about my family was found. Peter tracked down the aunt we had lost contact with over 50 years ago and three cousins who didn't even know we existed. Peter sent me certificates, war records and even photos of a home my aunt lived in. We have since had get-togethers with our cousins and I feel we will be keeping in contact long after we return to Australia. 

What a wonderful and fascinating journey Peter Clifford of Forefathers has taken us on. I would not hesitate asking Peter to do more research for me and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking into researching their family history.

To Peter Clifford of Forefathers from me and my family - thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
