Erin has over 25 years’ experience in genealogical research. Since 2016, she has been providing professional research services and has assisted clients with beginning or continuing their family history research. An experienced public speaker, Erin is available for genealogy or history conferences and has conducted online lectures for the University of Strathclyde’s Genealogical degree program. Additionally, Erin has experience in broadcasting and writing. She would be happy to hear from you to discuss your research requirements.
Based in the South East of England, Erin can easily access historical and archival resources in London, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and Wiltshire. Erin is also adept at research in Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, France and Belgium.
A dual Australian/French citizen, Erin is fluent in French and can provide translation services of historical documents (to/from French/English).
Erin completed a MSc in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies with the University of Strathclyde and specialised in female title inheritance in England and Scotland. Her expertise extends, therefore, to aristocratic genealogical and historical research, particularly in the Early Modern period.
She is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Sussex and her thesis is titled ‘I cannot conceive of a man without thought’: Life Courses and Care of Patients at the Sussex County Asylum, 1859-1914.
Each client is different and, as such, the research requirements differ and the number of hours required for a project will be agreed prior to commencement. In general, however, most clients opt for a 2, 5, 10 or 20 hour research package. This allows them to manage the budget for research and for Erin to organise the project according to the hours allocated.
