Gengenie Research

Our Story

Gengenie Research has been developed over many years, our company started with the creation of Scotland’s Gengenie which was established in 2005 and has developed into our successful Family HistoryResearch Business.

Scotland’s Gengenie was derived from a love of family history discovered after Shirley was given a family photograph of her great-grandparents wedding along with a small hand-written diagram. This was where Shirley was bitten by the genealogy bug and a love of all thing to do with family history took hold.

Shirley enjoys researching client’s family histories, she says "there is nothing more enjoyable than seeing a client’s face light up as they open up their printed family tree for the first time, or when they read about their family’s history in the printed report they receive with their printed chart and documents."

Shirley then took the decision to branch out into the Probate and Missing Person side of the Genealogy business after being approached by clients who were looking for information in these fields.

Being based only a short 20 minutes commute from New Register House gives Gengenie Research a perfect location base for specializing in Scottish Research and the many online sources Gengenie use give us an equal footing to research cases further afield.
