The Trenchard Partnership is a husband and wife team with a wide range of experience in family history research. They are both members of AGRA (Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives) and of the Society of Genealogists.
Mike Trenchard started researching his own family in the 1960s when original census books could be handled. His research has taken him to record repositories in London and to many county record offices. In the 1980s he found that his research took him to the College of Arms where the family he is descended from are registered from the 13th century. Mike has registered a continuation of the pedigree at the College to his current family. Mike has been included in the approved Independent Researcher List for the National Archives in the UK. He has also been included in the approved Research Agent List for the British Library, Asian and African Collections dealing primarily with the records of the East India Company and the India Office. Mike used to own a company specialising in association management where attention to detail was all important.
Sue Trenchard has been a professional librarian for many years in a variety of sectors, although much of her career has been spent in the education field. Her library skills are invaluable in searching for records.
