Hello! My name is Maxine and I’m the Archive Angel.
Every day I become a story-teller, a detective and a code-breaker; researching history so my clients can uncover their origins and the lives of their ancestors, humbled or hallowed! Historical research, whether for a family tree, a past event or a specific period can be a thoroughly rewarding and enlightening experience, both for my clients and for me.
As a qualified archivist, my training, skills and twenty years of experience can help you to uncover the real story. Find out more about me.
Do you hold a collection of historical records or artefacts and you’re not sure what to do with it? Do you need help unlocking the information held within? Perhaps you would like to discuss long-term preservation and access or methods of display and exhibition?
I work with individuals, organisations and estates within the North Yorkshire area to decipher, catalogue, preserve and display historical material and artefacts. Find out more.
Would you like to uncover the truth about your ancestral heritage? Are you trying to find out more about the home you live in? Perhaps you’re producing a film or TV documentary, or writing a book, and you’d like help with some research of the local area or a period of history? Find out more.
I love what I do: I’m a passionate archivist and I’m honoured to be asked to help tell other people’s stories. Contact me today for a free half-hour consultancy on your project.
‘Thank you for your magnificent work on the Norton Conyers archives. You are so well organised, so imaginative, so good with people and have managed to complete a difficult task most efficiently.’
Sir James and Halina Graham, Norton Conyers
