Veronica Lisle became interested in family history in 1976 when she became a member of the newly established Northumberland and Durham Family History Society.

As her interest developed she completed a Certificate in Family History at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Over the years she has traced her own family from resources available in archives in various parts of the UK as well as in France, Belgium and Germany. Whilst working in Australia and New Zealand she continued researching for herself and other family connections.

She was brought up in the North East of England and has a great interest in local and social history and architecture.
