Graham Barker wrote his first family history booklet as a teenager, inspired by a school project. Over the ensuing 30 years, he has been captivated by researching his ancestors – from ne’er-do-wells to entrepreneurs – and has written up some of their stories for the Leicestershire & Rutland FHS journal. His current LRFHS series, ‘Trading Stories, Working Lives’ focuses on occupational histories, and he has also written 70 heritage walks for East End Life. He’s currently researching the biography of a boom-and-bust Victorian builder in London.
