Archive Ancestry is run by Natalie Bell. I have been researching genealogy both personally and professionally for ten years and love making new discoveries for people. I have a BA Hons in History from Trinity College and specialise in the Medieval period.


As well as conducting extensive family research over the years, I have also worked on transcription projects with the National Archives and am well versed in paleography and transcribing historic documents for academic and personal purposes.

My own personal family research has seen me trace all surname lines back at least five generations, with many going back much further. I've encountered many shocks and surprises and have even managed to take one line, the MacLeans, all the way back to the fourteenth century thanks to rich Scottish Clan histories.
