“Chance encounters are what keep us going” - Haruki Murakami

Welcome

Have you ever wondered whether there’s any truth to that family rumour?

Do you want to discover more about the people and events that have shaped your world?

Are you curious about your origins and why you’re often described as a ‘chip off the old block’?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then what’s stopped you from finding out?

  • Is it because you simply don’t have the time?
  • Is it because you don’t know where to begin?
  • Is it because you don’t think your ancestors achieved anything worthy of note?

Whatever the reason, Chance Encounters has a range of services designed to unlock the lives of your ancestors and provide the answers you want.

Every man is a quotation from all his ancestors

Ralph Waldo Emerson
