Goldsmith Genealogy is a small business specialising in researching family history within the British Isles. This covers the more traditional aspects of genealogical work such as record and certificate finding, house histories, and the transcription and translation of old documents. In addition, services of historical investigation and property histories are also offered to businesses.

Goldsmith Genealogy is distinguished by its personal approach to its clients, arranging face-to-face interviews where possible before the work is commenced. This enables the client to interact with the design of the research project. The research is conducted by professional historian, Jeremy Goldsmith.

House Histories - If you would like to find out more about the story of your house, who built it and who lived in it before you, why not commission a house history? This will be of interest whether you have recently bought a house, or want to find something different as a house-warming or Christmas present. These are available from £80 upwards.
