Devon Family Genealogy Tour

This is a fantastic and unique opportunity for you to truly bring your family history to life. You may have spent months or years researching your family tree, but you’ve done it all from a chair, using your computer. Well, here is your chance to actually get to see the places where your ancestors were born, lived, worked, went to Church, and died.

Using my local knowledge of the area, my knowledge of how to access relevant information locally and off the net, and my experience in extensively researching my own genealogy, I can put together a great day out where we visit the area in Devon that your family came from. We can visit the beautiful countryside, towns and villages of your forebears, and go inside the churches that they once attended services in. Possibly we can find their headstones, and go to lunch in the pub they once ate in. I can help to put the colour into your family history, and we can certainly include plenty of time for photo stops.


  • 9.00 am – collection from your accommodation. We will proceed to the locations that we’ve identified as being relevant to your family, whether they are in towns, villages or the countryside.
  • 12.00 pm – lunch will be in a handpicked pub or restaurant, during which I will share with you some of my fascinating family history, if you wish.
  • 14.00 this can proceed in much the same manner as the morning, maybe visiting Churches, and allowing plenty of opportunity for photography. Alternatively, it can be shaped according to your wishes and interests, possibly stopping for a traditional Devonshire cream tea at the end of the afternoon.
  • 5.30 pm – return to your accommodation.
