Anglo Genealogy


Hello, my name is Neil Wooldridge and Anglo Genealogy is the result of my ongoing British family history and ancestor research.


As I have said before "... since I started my love affair with linking days gone by with real people and fleshing out the vital facts I have constantly found websites and companies eager to take money for supplying information which is already in the public domain. I pledge to give access to all the information I already have, to others researching in similar fields, for free.


My aim is to make Anglo Genealogy the place to come to on the web for helpful information and assistance when carrying out your own Family History, Ancestor or Historical Research..."

My career has progressed from the shipping industry to management roles delivering large scale projects with a few IT support roles in between. It is this broad spectrum of corporate experiences that has honed my organisational skills which I now employ when undertaking research projects.


I have always had an interest with the past and in particular the two World Wars to which I have ancestral links. Following family deaths and with great help from my wife, I turned my interest into active research and so the early seeds of Anglo Genealogy were sown.


Now based in Sydney I spent my first 30 years in London and the Home Counties and still make regular trips to the UK and it is this local knowledge that really helps me to relate my research to these locations.


Currently a student of the National Institute for Genealogical Studies, I am studying for the Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies (PLCGS).
