Welcome to Charnwood Genealogy in Essex

My name is Simon Last and I set Charnwood Genealogy up as I have always had a passion for history and genealogy and have researched into my own family history over the last few years.


Having studied genealogy and obtained a Post Graduate Certificate in Genealogy through the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, I have helped several people discover their family history and developed their family trees.


Charnwood Genealogy offers a unique and friendly research service for those wishing to discover more about their own family history.


Life is not about its destination, but its journey…
