I have been researching my family history for over 20 years but my fascination started much earlier while spending many hours with my nan sharing stories about the items in an old cardboard box of family treasures, documents and photographs.
My career started at the BBC in London as a Television Camerawoman working on EastEnders, House of Elliot, Blue Peter and many other programs. This was followed by spells at the then Satrosphere, now Aberdeen Science Centre and TechFest before setting up my own company, K'NEXT Generation, in 2008.
I have always been a keen photographer and I love old photographs for the stories they tell, the feelings they evoke and the mysteries they can create or solve. And, most importantly, how they can bring people together.
Since qualifying as a genealogist in 2018 with the University of Strathclyde I have been learning and practising Photogenealogy. I would love to use my skills and knowledge to help others experience the joy, excitement and fulfilment of Photogenealogy... hence the Photogenealogy articles and a book.
