Tell us a bit about your genealogy/family history journey
Became interested when I was given a school project aged 12. Seriously began researching during college and turned professional about 10 years ago. I turned a passion into a business.

If you could meet one person from your family tree that died before you were born, who would it be and why?
My 3x great-grandfather, Alexander Ure. I want to know if he was actually Scottish, as his surname suggests. His 1901 census form is riddled with mistakes, recording him as aged 7 not 70. His birthplace says Glasgow but it’s crossed out and replaced with England. I proved he had 2 brothers through DNA and have names for their parents but no details, so hopefully he’d be able to tell me a bit more!

3 ongoing client research projects plus some work on my own Irish ancestry. I’ll be starting teaching my beginners class again soon too.
