writing Your Ancestors' Stories
just got easier...

Are You Looking To Transform Dry Dull Facts into Captivating Family History Stories That Everyone Will Want To Read? Then You’re In The Right Place. Share Incredible Stories With The Curious Descendants Club.

have your ever FOUND YOURSELF...

We’ve all faced those problems! But they shouldn’t hold us back from sharing our ancestors’ stories, from giving voice to those that had no voice and from passing on our discoveries. 

 

That’s why I created The Curious Descendants Club.

 

 

How would it feel to….

Thankfully I have the solution…

Introducing
the Curious Descendants Club

This new and unique Club is an exclusive membership dedicated to helping you to write your family history stories. It combines virtual, live workshops with regular writing challenges and access to a community of family history lovers, just as passionate about their ancestors as you. I believe in learning ‘by doing’ and so all activities are as practical and as interactive as possible!

 

The Curious Descendants Club has been shaped by members just like you. Before launching I invited Founding Members to come onboard and give me feedback on my offerings. The Club has been built upon the experiences of real family historians, from beginners to experts. At it’s heart is a supportive community of friends united by their desire to share their ancestors’ stories.

See behind the scenes....

Hey There, I'm Natalie and I Can't Wait To Help...

I’m a self confessed history geek, story lover and Mum of 3 living in the beautiful Somerset countryside in the UK. I started tracing my family tree when I was 18, whilst studying for a degree in English Lit. I told you I love stories, right!? I spent long nights devouring many classic novels. Stories by social commentators (like Charles Dickens) fuelled my interest in discovering the lives of my ancestors – and helped me to understand their world.

After Uni I had a career in Project Management, before embarking on Motherhood and the start of my genealogy business, offering research services. 

It was whilst helping other research their ancestors that I realised just how many people struggle to write their ancestors stories AND as my network of family history friends grew, I realised the huge benefits gained from working with others…thus the Curious Descendants Club was born.
