Unlocking Your Past is run by Lauren Ford, a self confessed history nerd with several years experience researching family history. This passion started with looking into her own ancestors and grew when friends and families started requesting Lauren’s research skills.

Lauren also holds three University qualifications in the discipline of history and has worked on historical photo research and museum acquisitions for local councils. Lauren is also a member of APGEN – The Association of Professional Genealogists, and is therefore bound by their code of ethics.

According to Lauren, the best part of family history research is helping people to fill gaps in their family stories and add much needed details to their family trees.

By combining both digital and physical resources Lauren can help you to find out what your ancestors were up to by UNLOCKING YOUR PAST.
