  • transcription - legal documents, diaries, correspondence or other paperwork

  • house history - detailed look at the people who lived in your house before you

House in the Woods

Ancestry Studies

Who were my ancestors? Where did they live, what did they do for a living, how many children did they have? Are there any secrets lurking in my family history? 

We've all watched the celebrities taking a journey into the past on the TV genealogy shows and wished we could do the same. We can take you on that journey, and show you where your family roots lie.

House and Building History

If you live in an older property, you've probably wondered what tales the walls could tell. We can help you find out about the people who lived in your house in the past including what they did for a living, how long they owned the property and how they might have used the space. 

It's not just stately homes and castles which have a story - the most interesting things can happen in the most ordinary of properties.


Morag helped me connect with my maternal Grandmother’s hometown. Our family knew very little about Grandma’s time in Scotland. We knew the name of the town but little else. Before the trip, Morag took careful notes and did research for us. When we arrived she took us on a lovely walk through the town and Loch Lomond. She shared so much history of the town! I honestly feel like I walked in my Grandma’s footsteps. Morag even made time for us to FaceTime with my Dad while we toured so he could experience connections with us. I’m ever grateful for Morag’s knowledge and kindness. Margaret & Jerry V. from Cleveland, Ohio
