As an experienced UK-based genealogical and historical records researcher, I specialize in pre-1800 English documents.  I am able to read and transcribe period handwriting, and translate documents that have been written in Latin.  I work primarily at The National Archives in London, where records such as probates (wills and administrations), Chancery court, King's Bench, E179 Taxation, Feet of Fines, Star Chamber, Exchequer, High Court of Admiralty, and other such records are located.  I also accept commissioned research at other county archives throughout England to examine local records such as parish registers (baptisms, marriages, burials), manorial records, probate records, quarter sessions, and militia lists.
