roots-in-kent - Family History research in Kent England








I am Sarah Talbutt and Roots in Kent is a small, friendly genealogy service based in Kent England.


I specialize in tracing the history of Kentish families, but have reciprocal arrangements in place with reliable local researchers in almost every English County and I have a client list that reaches from New South Wales to Manitoba


My interest in family history started, as is often the case, when I had children of my own and thirty years of unravelling my own unique mix of Somerset peasantry, Welsh bards, Essex rebels and Irish farmers, has taught me much about how to rediscover the remarkable, yet often barely remarked upon lives of ordinary people.


I can safely boast that I have managed to take some of my family lines back 600 years and have yet to find a famous or indeed infamous ancestor.


Wherever possible I back up parish register searches with the use of census, Wills, inventories, manorial and parish accounts and every other available material to produce a more detailed picture of the everyday lives of my clients' ancestors
