I am currently studying for a Masters in History at the University of Canterbury, having recently graduated with First Class B.A. Hon (History). My Masters thesis is on Remittance Men in New Zealand.
I have always had a love of cemeteries and local history, and have spent over 20 years researching my own family’s history in the UK and India.
I previously ran a gravestone search and photography service in the UK called Ancestors Reunited, even attracting the attention of BBC Radio 4, who interviewed me live from a rural Scottish cemetery at 5am one cold wintry morning!
