About Me

Clare Kirk

Writer, Consultant & History Nerd

I started tracing my family tree at the age of 10 (loooong before the Internet) and it’s been a life-long passion. As well as researching my own family’s history, I enjoy writing articles about all sorts of history topics – shining light on long-forgotten people and sharing stories that didn’t make it into the history books.

A startup marketing consultant by day, I have volunteered in museum archives in California and Oxfordshire and worked as a museum manager. I’m currently creating digital content for the Friends of Friendless Churches, who care for 55 redundant historic churches in England & Wales. I’m also proud to be a trustee of Cotswold Archaeology, one of the UK’s leading commercial archaeology companies, whose mission is to increase public awareness and appreciation of the Past.
