My name is Kelly Cornwell.  I have been researching family histories for over 20 years, and have conducted studies in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, U.S.A, Australia and India. I gained a Distinction in the Pharos Family History Skills & Strategies Intermediate course, and am currently studying the Advanced course.

I present talks on how to start researching your family history, how to break down brick walls, and English convicts transported to Tasmania.

For details of the research packages I offer, please go to my Packages page. If you would like to enquire about my services as a Speaker, please contact me here.

“Kelly was amazing, helping me find information on my Dad who I’d be trying to find information about for the last 50 years. Just wish I’d found her services a long time ago. She kept me informed through all the process by email, never gave up and worked very hard. If you are looking for information about your family, then Kelly is your person to find that information. I highly recommend her and her services. A+++++” K.R.

“I received the report this morning and I’ve read it about 5 times. It’s absolutely amazing what Kelly managed to uncover and put together. There’s so much depth in the stories with a huge amount of detail. This will certainly bring a tear to a lot of family members. It truly means a lot to see this. Thank you so much.” R.P-E.

“Really thrilled with my family tree and feel so much more connection to people I never met! What a fabulous gift to share with the rest of my family. I highly recommend Who Am I? and look forward to her helping me again.” A.F.

“It’s been an amazing journey into the past. Kelly has been so thorough and diligent ensuring all our family’s details are accurate. She has given us a real insight into their lives too. My mum and I are overwhelmed and delighted by it all! Something so special to keep in the family and pass on to the next generation.” L.R.

“I would like to say a big thank you for your work on my ancestors search. It was amazing to find out where I am descended from. How you managed to go back so far I don’t know. Well done and thanks again. ​ I will be recommending to my friends for sure.” G.G.
