Over the months that I have been associated with Forefathers Research, through my contact, Peter, I have found him to be most professional and honest in his approach. He is friendly, courteous and easy to talk to. He provides timely and informed answers to my questions. In this respect, he seems to be one step ahead of me, anticipating my questions, for I no sooner pose them when his informed reply arrives - responses that often require some degree of research on his part. This I really appreciate, given both the different time zones between the UK and Australia and my impatience in wanting answers.

In particular, Peter has been most helpful in uncovering family details that defied the best efforts of my family for many months and years in some cases. Despite our many fruitless searches for family details of arrival in the land of Oz, Peter was able to not only tell us who and when, but also the names of the ships they emigrated in. Whereas we were expecting to find only British flagged ships, Peter found the details not only in a British flagged ship, but also in a Dutch flagged ship as well, on charter to the British Government. Who would have thought to look there but an experienced genealogist!

His local knowledge of the UK system is most invaluable, especially for those of us that live in the Antipodes, or across the Pond.

It therefore gives me great pleasure to recommend Peter without hesitation to anyone who is interested in, or thinking of, engaging the services of Forefathers Research.
