Family heritage tours
Manchester was a centre for immigration and emmigration, as The World's First Industrial city, many people left the North West of England and settled all over The World.
This is your opportunity to discover your family heritage, working together with local libraries and yourself, we can trace your family back to their roots.
I build a portfolio of relevant places before your arrival, enabling you to maximise your time in the area, finding graves, houses, schools, churches and even long lost relatives.

John was a fantastic guide--a 10 on a 1-5 scale. I was looking for places where my relatives lived & worshipped 150+ years ago. John contacted, researched & visited the sites before hand so we could find them quickly, visit with locals, take plenty of pictures & really understand the context of the times. He was incredibly knowledgeable, generous with his time, personable, &'flexible. This tour exceeded my expectations in every way. Can't say enough good things about the day. Absolutely fantastic!
