Your Welsh Ancestors – professional UK genealogist

Your Welsh Ancestors (YWA) is one of Wales's leading genealogical service providers. We can trace your ancestors in Wales and beyond as well as long lost family members. With our expertise, you are guaranteed a thorough and professional service.

Research in Wales can be challenging, given the multitude of families who share common surnames such as Jones, Evans and Williams. And as the roots of Welsh families stem from a culture and history different to that of England, an expert approach is often needed.


It is therefore vital that you choose a professional genealogist who has an in-depth knowledge of Wales, its history and people. Based in Wales, and with our specialist insight of Welsh resources and history, we can help you uncover your family's past... and present.


We can tailor the research to suit your own needs or you can choose from our value-for-money packages – ideal gifts for special occasions such as birthdays and Christmas.
