Rowana has been researching genealogy and family history for over thirty years, firstly for her own and friends families and then professionally. Additionally she has been training for the last ten years completing courses in genealogy and attending lectures with the Society of Genealogists.
The requisite skills for a genealogist are similar to those required in her previous occupations, being a logical thinker, analytical, tenaciously rummaging around for answers, teasing out the facts and providing evidence based reports.
Rowana is a professional Genealogist based in London and is currently studying for the Higher Certificate in Genealogy at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies. Rowana is also an associate member of AGRA (Association of Genealogist and Researchers in Archives) and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. (APG)
