I was very impressed by Natalie’s presentation on researching Irish family history records at the 2022 Really Useful Conference so I immediately sought her help with researching ancestors in the north of Ireland and across the North Channel in south-west Scotland.
Living a long way from Ireland myself I had been hoping for some years to find a genealogist based in Ireland who could help fill family history gaps as I know how challenging Irish records can be, especially at long distance.
Natalie was very responsive, well organised and helpful; although I had to wait a while as she is a popular genealogist, I knew I had made the right choice and my confidence in her skills and local knowledge was rewarded when I received her thorough and informative report exactly on schedule. I am working on another family history conundrum and will be approaching Natalie again for more of her excellent assistance.

Natalie is tremendous!
She was on target and detailed. She helped me find both sides of my family while she’s in Ireland and I’m in New Jersey.
Hire her now!

I was very impressed with the report I received. It was extremely thorough and well presented, containing an awful lot of information both genealogical and demographical. I would not hesitate to use Natalie’s services again and highly recommend her to you.

I engaged Natalie Bodle from Rootsrevealed.co.uk in November 2022 to carry out research on my family history. My father’s family came from Ulster and I believed that Natalie would be well placed to help me research his family history.
She carried out this work in a very professional manner and I was very happy with the results. The scope of the work was clearly defined and set out in an agreement before any work began, and Natalie carried out the agreed work very thoroughly and most importantly, within the timeframe agreed.
Natalie made many helpful suggestions in relation to the research and furnished a full professionally produced report summarising her findings. I would be very happy to recommend her services to anyone.looking to carry out genealogical research in Ulster.

After a first research carried out by Natalie in 2022 (see my comment in August 2022 on her site), I’ve decided to entrust her with a further research with 2 main goals : refine some of the data provided in the first research (for instance search in Belfast Street directory to know until when some people of the family were mentioned or get some additional certificates for my family database), and to expand the information on two family branches which were not included in my first priorities.
Once again I’ve appreciated Natalie’s expertise to help me better defining what could be done in a reasonable delay and cost.
Like the first time, we’ve agreed on a clear scope of work, and the second report provides really interesting and amazing information about my family.
Since I also work by myself on my French family genealogy, I really appreciate what has been done by Natalie for my Irish side.
And my siblings (France and Canada) and 3 cousins (Northern Ireland and Canada) are also impatient to discover this second part of the report !

Natalie definitely gives her all when researching a tricky genealogical question. She was able to find numerous new sources, explore evidence of the travel of my 1600s era ancestor between England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, and, through deduction, pinpoint which of my ancestors may have traveled to America. Her report was well researched and I would highly recommend her to flesh out any U.K.-Ireland genealogical questions you may encounter.

Brilliant 4 week course which has helped me find ancestors I’ve been searching for for a long time. Very informative and so well presented. Would definitely recommend. Many thanks Natalie.

I have just completed a very interesting and informative 4 sessions workshop in genealogy taken by Natalie. In it I was given numerous free websites and some that required a fee. Natalie also gave me useful advice on how to navigate the information. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in researching their ancestors.
B.G. of County Antrim – Genealogy Course January 2023.
Natalie has a vast knowledge of researching family genealogy. She delivered her information in bite size chunks, in a logical, enjoyable way. Natalie has a natural delivery with empathy and understanding to a diverse group of attendees. I attended a short 4 week course but on reflection would have liked the course to continue for further sessions.

The research carried out by Natalie and the report provided were both of a very high professional standard. The comprehensive and detailed information has shed light on family history of which I knew very little and opened up possibilities for further research related to the lives of past generations and the strong family connections between Scotland and Northern Ireland.
I would highly recommend Natalie’s work and would have no hesitation in contacting Natalie again for any future research.
G.L. of Lothian, Scotland. 06 December 2021.
You have set out the research report very clearly and it is easy to read. I appreciate the care that you have taken with the listing of your sources.
You have revealed some of my family roots and I now know more about their geographical origins. The information included in the dates and events gives me some insight into the daily lives of earlier family members and the struggles they faced with poverty, illness and child deaths.
