Based at the edge of the Nant Ffrancon Valley in Snowdonia, North Wales, The History House (Domus Historiae in Latin) provides a genealogical and family history research service.

Whether you want to trace your ancestors and learn about their lives, or whether you are an author or TV production company requiring specific historical information, The History House can help.

The History House offers a service based on methodical research and excellent customer care. Each individual’s family history is a precious and exciting journey of discovery and we consider it a privilege to go on that journey with them.

Why Are We Called The History House?

Historian and founder, Dr Hazel Pierce, studied medieval and early modern history at Bangor University, North Wales where she also completed her PhD.

Whilst Hazel was a student at Bangor, the School of History was located in a quaint detached house opposite the university library which the students referred to as ‘The History House’. It has since been demolished to make way for more modern buildings but the name survives as a tribute to the happy times spent there.
