Anne Batty

Anne Batty

My name is Anne Batty, I am a married mother of two children, a member of the Society of Genealogists and a proud supporter of the Scarborough, York and Harrogate civic societies.

Family is something that I hold dear to myself and have found the research of my own family roots fascinating and fulfilling.

The sad loss of my Grandfather some years ago inspired me to trace my own ancestry to the early 1600’s and discover who I am. This in turn, led me to start a business researching and illustrating other people’s ancestry.

Although based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire our services are available throughout the UK.

Family Discovery was founded by myself and with the support of my husband Adrian who is a computer engineer we aim to deliver professional genealogical research and photo restoration services.
