Sue Swalwell

A hunter of stories
|
England

Inheriting the family archive 40 years ago triggered Sue's passion for rebuilding the life stories of her ancestors, of their communities and of those who bear the Swalwell surname.

ABOUT THIS SPEAKER

More about

Sue

Sue Swalwell grew up in North Yorkshire before going to University in London where she still lives and worked as a researcher in marketing and advertising.

As someone who became the caretaker of the family archive, she has now been studying her ancestors and their communities for forty years. Sue established a Swalwell One-Name Study, so now also studies the family name and its place within history.

Sue has spoken on her discoveries and experiences at the Society of Genealogists, Secret Lives Conference 2018, Family Tree Live 2019, Unlock the Past Cruise Conference 2019, Queensland Family History Society.

Sue loves re-discovering and re-building the forgotten stories of bearers of the Swalwell surname.
