Hello and welcome to the brand new, all singing, all dancing, Family Wise Limited website. Having lived in the dark ages for such a long time, a full time professional family and local history research lifestyle has enabled me to ‘get online’. Social networking and blogging is replacing what used to be after-school meetings and marking – I can assure you, this is far more entertaining!
Having claimed back over £70,000 for clients in my first year as a part-time Heir Hunter, the decision was made in April to swap the M4 drive at 7 o’clock each morning for being my own boss. And I am certainly not looking back…. no two days are the same and no two cases are either…
Finding people is extremely rewarding. Claiming money back from the Treasury for unknowing beneficiaries, tracking down those long-lost relations, or finding out more about your ancestors’ lives and experiences…. all cases have stories to be told.
Family Wise Limited is my company – I’m Kirsty Gray, perhaps best known for being Chairman of the Guild of One-Name Studies, Director of English Studies for the National Institute for Genealogical Studies and Chair of the Society for One-Place Studies. But this company is not just me…. it’s a network of amazing researchers and colleagues across the globe dedicated to going that extra mile, finding that extra piece of information and not leaving a single stone untouched along the way.
We cater for all your family research needs.
