Tailored to your own Family History I will research if the census or other documented addresses for your family still exist using various maps and resources. I will also explore what may be of interest in the area your ancestors lived and worked.
From the earliest French Huguenot settlers to the Jewish incomers and the present Bangladeshi community did you have ancestors who lived there?
A popular public house on the East India Dock Road they still have live bands at the weekends was it your ancestors' local.

Once I have designed your bespoke walk and we have agreed a date, I will send an invoice via PayPal for a deposit to secure your date for you. I will then invoice the balance payable just before the walk.

“I spent a really interesting morning with Diane, seeing parts of the East End I’d never have thought to visit alone. Having mentioned my ancestors were from the area, she went above and beyond to tailor our walk to places they lived and would have known, as well as pointing out points of hidden history along the way. Diane is lovely and really knowledgeable. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her walks to anyone with an interest in history, particularly genealogy.
I am happy to offer a discount to family groups, accompanying children 8-15 go for free,
WI groups, and especially Family History Society group members.
Please contact me for details.
