Search East is run by me, Christine Bartram, a fully qualified historian and genealogist. I gained my first BA (Hons) degree in History from Cambridge University and worked there for 14 years gaining valuable experience in research and archive work. I studied for an MA in Heritage Management whilst working in a Norfolk Museum and am PGCE (University of Bath) qualified to teach History in schools.

I am committed to Continuing Professional Development and have a particular specialism in Heraldry which I studied with IHGS. Welcoming research requests from across the globe, I have regularly provided research for individuals and universities from the UK, Europe, the USA, Australia, South America and South Africa. Working with those who require accurate historical detail for their work and using my academic training I take a flexible but rigorous approach to genealogical and historical research. Search East clients range from complete beginners looking for help with their family trees to experienced academics who need specific information from archives.

Whatever your research requirements, Search East would be delighted to hear from you.
