I am Sandra Underwood, a full-
time, self-employed genealogist based in County Durham in the North East of England and have 20 years' family history research experience.

As a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), the Heir Hunters' Association and the International Institute of Genealogists (iiG), I adhere to their Codes of Practice.

I provide a full family history research service across the whole of the UK and specialise in Durham, Northumberland & Scotland.

As well as being the official genealogist of Fentimans Ltd (www.Fentimans.com), I have featured in the 'Family Tree' Magazine and was also invited to write a guest blog for the 'My Heritage' website.  

In 2016 I was commissioned to assist with the research into Cheryl's family history for "Who Do You Think You Are?"  Previous commissions have included the family history of world-renowned musician, Bryan Ferry; Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon and US Politician, Hillary Clinton (please see the 'News Update' page for further information).  

I am a weekly visitor to my local archive at Durham Records Office and a regular visitor to the Northumberland Archives at Woodhorn, the Tyne & Wear Archives Service (TWAS) in Newcastle upon Tyne and the Local Studies Library at Newcastle City Library.  I also visit the Local LDS Family History Centres in Newton Aycliffe and Sunderland as well as the Family History Centres located in Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne & Durham Clayport Libraries. I also visit the North Yorkshire Records Office in Northallerton. 

Please feel free to visit the 'Testimonials' page to see some of the feedback I have received from clients.

I look forward to helping you with your research.  To contact me at Ances-Tree Family History Research, please click here.
