Trace My Ancestry
I found Jake on a website called Bark, and from the first email I sent him, asking him if he could help me with my family tree, he was very quick to respond and I found him to be very easy to work with. His work ethic is 100%, and willing to go the extra mile to find important information. I would absolutely hire him for any additional information I might need to have. No hesitation in a 5 star rating.
I was very happy dealing with Jake as I didn’t really know how to go about setting up the family tree and he helped me all the way. Even if I thought something needed to be changed it was no trouble for him. Jake was very good keeping me informed as to the progress we were making and I would definitely recommend him to any who wanted to set up their family history.
Jake provided great service and support in preparing our Family Tree and also detailed verified information well above our expectations. Jake always responded quickly to our questions and he completed the task in a timely manner. So appreciated!
Family History Research Services
Have you ever wondered where your family comes from? Might you be related to someone famous? Are you interested in your ethnic origins?
My research focuses on direct ancestry (eg, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents…). My sources include the following:
- Historical newspapers
- Records of births, marriages and deaths (or parish registers prior to civil registration)
- Immigration records
- Court and criminal records
- Census records
- Electoral rolls
- National Archives
This is not an exhaustive list, but bear in mind that recent records may be restricted due to privacy concerns (eg, a birth certificate registered in NSW less than 100 years ago).
As stated above, my research specialises in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. See below the project fees:

About JH McConnell
My own interest in family history began when my grandfather showed me a book tracing our ancestry back seven generations to Norfolk, England. I already had a fascination with history in general, extending to old coins and archaeology. But now with a family tree, I could see my own links to the past.
For example, when I learned of the controversy surrounding the famous Australian outlaw Ned Kelly, I was so interested in his story that I decided to write another life-story for him based on my own research. Little did I know that, as my grandmother later told me, our family is apparently related to Ned Kelly!
Years later, as a researcher, it is my aim to provide clients with family histories that they can be confident in. In my reports, I always cite the sources, allowing you to review any of the evidence for yourself. I hope the findings will provide fascination for your family for generations to come!
