"Sylvia found all sorts of interesting things about my family that I never knew before.
She kept me up to date on developments and discussed the steps she recommended to uncover more.
She kept costs to a minimum, only buying the records essential to the progress of the research.
She provided more than just a list of names, but helped to make these people "come alive" for me."
"Sylvia Valentine solved a very difficult Family History problem for my Family.
This involved tracking down my Father, a man who had left his first wife and changed his name before leaving U.K.,
no easy task if you consider that the search began in 1878.
Sylvia did some amazing research work and along the way provided us with photos and narratives relating to the locality in U.K.
where my Father had lived. I can certainly recommend Sylvia to help you with your Family History researches."
"Sylvia Valentine was a wonderful genealogist find!
I live in the US and was having a difficult time sorting out my ancestors in the north of England, Carlisle area.
She accepted the challenge and did a fantastic job of sorting my family out for me.
Sylvia was a terrific communicator, I couldn't wait to hear about her new finds in my family.
I'm very grateful to Sylvia and so happy our paths crossed."
I am so happy with the research Sylvia carried out for me.
I had come up with a "brick wall", about my family from the East End of London.
I have been researching for over 20 years and living in Australia, I would need to physically go to places to look for information.
Since adding Sylvia's information to my online tree, I have been contacted by a distant relation in the UK, who sent me documents and photographs.
These are the first photographs I have seen of any of my family members, who originally emigrated to South Australia in 1894.
I was beside myself with excitement.
Without Sylvia's research I probably would never have been able to have the contact with the family member who has a wealth of photographs and documents, and who, like me, had not been able to find any background information.
I would recommend Sylvia and her work to anyone.
Whilst being professional at all times, I also found her very approachable and happy to help with small queries.
I feel so lucky to have found my first contact with a genealogical researcher to be a positive and collaborative one.
