About Us

Alison began researching her family tree fifteen years ago.

Encountering family mysteries, adoptions and many brick walls, what began as a hobby became a passion and her desire to learn about new sources led her to undertake classes in genealogy at Strathclyde University which led to an MSc in genealogical, palaeographic and heraldic studies. With a particular interest in Ayrshire she has completed extensive research focusing on child workers at Catrine mill and pauper children in the parishes of Beith, Steventson and Kirkmichael during the nineteenth century.
