The Ancestor Detective

Unravelling the mystery of your family history!

Paul Millington, the Ancestor Detective

Hello, my name is Paul Millington and I am the Ancestor Detective. I live with my family in the beautiful county of Herefordshire. That’s me there on the right.

I am an experienced genealogist who has been tracing family histories for nearly 30 years. I have experience of most types of English records from Tudor times to the present day.

I started tracing my own family tree by interviewing my grandfather when I was 12. As a result of my researches I have discovered attendance at riots, religious conversion, and sheep stealing – and my family is by no means out of the ordinary!

I have served on the committee of a well known genealogical society for over a decade, writing much of their web – based software in use today, and given talks on a range of genealogical subjects.

I know that searching for your family history can, at first, seem a daunting task and many people are put off by the thought of trawling through so many archives to find their family, often leading them to quickly abandon the project.

This is where I can help. For those people who wish it, I can start from scratch or if you have already done some detective work yourself I can carry on your good work.

I have put together four distinct options which will enable you to know exactly what you will get and how much it will cost you.

All of the options are attractively presented for you to have as a keepsake or to give as a gift which your loved one will treasure.

If you wish to purchase a family history gift from the Ancestor Detective then please contact me by e-mail at or by telephone on 01432 820882/07866 010841.
