Tony Griggs - Professional Genealogist
Tony Griggs is a highly experienced Professional Genealogist based in Ashford, Kent, United Kingdom. With 20 years of expertise in tracing ancestors and uncovering family history, he began accepting fee-based projects in 2012 and has since worked with hundreds of clients, dedicating over 1000 hours each year to their needs. His extensive research has taken him across all counties in England, Scotland, and Wales, delving as far back as 500 years.
Tony is a proud member of AGRA (Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives), the premier professional organisation for genealogists in England and Wales. To become an AGRA member, one must demonstrate several years of experience and pass a rigorous assessment of their work by the Board of Assessors. He has received formal training in genealogy research and has extensive experience working with various source types in archives such as The National Archives, The London Metropolitan Archives, The Society of Genealogists, Kent Archives and Canterbury Cathedral Archives.
Tony's family history research predates the availability of many online sources, and as a result, he has a deep understanding of which records to use, both digital and in archives, to construct an accurate family tree.
My mission is to provide reliable and comprehensive genealogy research services, uncovering and preserving the unique stories of each family's past with passion, accuracy, and attention to detail. I strive to bring families closer together through a better understanding of their heritage.
