About us


Linklines Research was established by Ian Marson, a genealogist of over 30 years experience. With a network of highly experienced accredited genealogists and record searchers we set high standards in the field of genealogical research. 

Individual membership of AGRA and ASGRA ensures that we maintain stringent minimum standards in research practice. These associations are the only organisations in England, Scotland and Wales requiring its members to undergo rigorous assessment and abide by a Code of Practice. 

In partnership with GenealogyUK and colleague Janet Bishop an equally experienced genealogist and probate researcher based in Scotland we offer a complete cross-border solution for all your research needs.
