Poole’s Family Research

My name is Alexander Poole I am a genealogist and historian who decided to share his passion and convert an amateur interest into a professional service.

I was educated at London School of Economics and Political Science and have a degree in International History. I have worked and managed projects in government both local and national in a capacity that has fine turned my archivist, research and record keeping skills.

My research interests includes 18th and 19th century history, particularly military and naval records, but I am also keen on social history, rural history, the poor law/workhouses, religious history, Caribbean genealogy and history of science and astronomy. Underpinning all this is a love of genealogy and discovering the power of small family details that shed light on a long gone age.

Poole’s Family Research has been in existence for 6 years and in that time undertaken a large number of projects of varying size and complexity. We are a professional, friendly and dedicated research service specialising in family tree packages and genealogy.
