Hannah Smith has had a long time love affair with family history. When she was 14 years old, Hannah became interested in researching and creating family trees thanks to inspiration from her dad.
Hannah’s hobby became more and more important, to the point where she quit her job and decided to make it her full-time career. Her dad, Allan Smith, was always creating family trees or doing research and Hannah said he was never away from some form of family history.
They would often work on pieces together as Hannah got older which inspired her to carry on the process after her dad’s sad and sudden death. Hannah’s dad died at 74 from heart failure.

Hannah said: “For as long as I can remember, my dad lived and breathed genealogy, he was always messing about with a family tree, so I just grew up with it, it was always a part of my life.
“Then when I was about 14, and better able to understand it, he showed me this family tree and I just felt enchanted by it I just couldn’t believe all the names of people who looked like me, and lived near me and I was just fascinated.
“I started doing bits of family trees and helping my dad with what he was working on and it went from there and when I was in school and in my 20s, I was always doing my friends family tree
“I did my first full project on my own at 21, for my BF at the time.
