Welcome to the website of Wightheirs!


We perform family and local history research on the Isle of Wight.

If you are researching your family history and have found a connection with the Isle of Wight, but are unable to visit in order to access local information sources, then we can do it for you!

We can:

  • research your family history at the local County Record Office, located in Newport. This contains parish records, court records, old newspapers and a wealth of other information.
  • obtain information from local libraries, churches, churchyards and cemeteries.
  • photograph a location that has a particular significance for you. 

We also offer a photo restoration service.  If you have old photos that are damaged or faded then we can provide copies with the images restored.

Our rates are very reasonable, and we are here to help you, so why not get in touch!
