Chalfont Research - Professional Family History Research

Leach Family of Blackburn

Welcome to Chalfont Research, a professional genealogy research service based in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire, just to the North West of London, ideally located to undertake family history research in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire and at all the major London Archives.

How can I help ?

I can help with any type of family related research, from a simple enquiry to a full genealogy pedigree, a family tree from scratch or access to an archive document to complement your own research. Whether you have been doing your own research and hit a brick wall, or just want help to get started, I can work with you to discover your fascinating family stories.

I regularly visit the major archives in London and surrounding counties including:

The National Archives at Kew
The British Library
London Metropolitan Archives
Westminster City Archives
The Society of Genealogists

The Oxfordshire History Centre, Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies, and the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies.

I can undertake research anywhere in the UK using on-line resources and I am also happy to visit archives further afield whenever necessary.

I can also carry out research into recent family, solve family mysteries and trace living relatives where appropriate.

August 2022 - I'm sorry, but due to a impending relocation, I am not currently able to take on any new research projects at the moment.
