Welcome to the website of Sarah E Doig, Professional Genealogist & Local Historian. I offer a wide range of services drawing on my training and experience in family and local history research. In offering these I aim to provide a professional, friendly and confidential service.

I specialise in research in East Anglia (Cambridgeshire, Essex, Huntingdonshire, Norfolk & Suffolk) and London. However, I can take on family history projects extending anywhere in England, Wales & Scotland, given the wealth of 19th & 20th century resources available on the internet.


Have you been bitten by the bug to learn about your ancestors?
Do you need local, expert help in progressing your own research?

If so, then I can help by devising and undertaking a tailored family history research project according to your requirements.

Perhaps you don't have much information which which to start?

Then my family history package might be the ideal solution.


Are you curious to know who has lived in your house over the years?
Do you want to know more about the history of your neighbourhood?

If so, then I can research the history of your house and the village or parish in which you or your ancestors lived. In addition to bespoke research projects, I offer a standard, fixed-price package for houses built after around 1800.


Are you researching your own family or house history and need help?
Do you need advice on what sources of information to use and how?

If so, then I offer face-to-face coaching sessions in East Anglia tailored to your requirements. I can also deliver courses to small groups and give talks to societies and clubs.


Do you have a friend/relative with a special birthday or anniversary?
Trying to think of an unusual christening or wedding gift?

If so, I would be happy to provide a personalised family history gift. Alternatively one of my gift vouchers may be the answer.

If you would like to discuss how I can help you discover your past, please email me.
