Northamptonshire Family History    Sue Comont

Family and Local History research in Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire

I am a fully qualified archivist and have worked in a number of Record Offices including the Northampton Record Office. I have over 10 years experience of research in family and local history so I have a good knowledge not only of types of records to search, but also of the collections held at the Northampton Record Office.
I tailor my work to the needs of the client so I will undertake research either as a big project or carry out smaller bits of work as and when the client asks for it.
I send a written report of my findings with clear references for the records I have searched. Where documents are difficult to read, such as wills or deeds, I can either provide a full transcription, or just extract the salient details. I can provide photocopies in many cases, but if copying in this manner is not possible due to the condition of the original, I can usually provide photographs.
Records I will use include:
Parish registers
Non-conformist records
Census returns
Property deeds
Manorial records
Poor Law materisl - both pre- and post-1834
School records
GRO indexes
