UK Generations

  Friendly and affordable family history services


Hello from
Peter W Aughton   
Dip. RSA

I created UK Generations in October 2008 and have built a reputation for accurate, attentive and successful research on behalf of a wide range of customers.

I am qualified at various levels in English history, including Local History Studies gained with Oxford University. My personal interests are within the period from the late Middle Ages through to the mid-20th century - and particularly with the Industrial Revolution, Victorian period and the First & Second World wars.

Since beginning research into my own family history in 1982, (which still goes on !) I have amassed a considerable knowledge of my forebears from the 16th and 17th centuries to date and of various lineages going back to the 12th and 13th centuries in England, Ireland and Wales. This gave me experience and knowledge of where to look and how to trace ancestors - often from minimal initial information. I have hit and resolved many research "brick walls" of my own and so can appreciate how difficult tracing your family history can be. 

On occasions I also did research for other family members and friends within periods spanning the past 300 years, helping them discover people previously lost from living memory. After observing how well such private efforts were received, I decided to establish UK Generations in order to make use of my research skills and the large library of resources I had accumulated. My intention was to use them to offer a range of affordable family history services that could benefit people interested in finding out more about their UK ancestry - whether to help start research, to assist with ongoing research, or to do a complete piece of research on their behalf.

I offer a tailored historical research service - tracing ancestors who primarily lived and worked within mainland England, Wales and Scotland from c.1650 through to the mid 20th century - and do it at a pace and affordability to suit you.    

UK Generations is based in Rugby, Warwickshire near the heart of the motorway and railway system of central England, so travel to any mainland UK destination is possible. Research has been done at many locations in mainland UK - and has even included work in Gibraltar. 

Rugby is close to many historic towns and villages in Warwickshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.  Please see the Focus on 2 counties maps and a closeup map of our central location here.

I am proud to have successfully helped many satisfied customers. Please take a look at the Testimonials page that shows a selection of generous comments.
