This might involve details of their training & service, details of operations carried out over Europe, encounters with enemy aircraft, Prisoner of War Records, information on those who evaded capture, crash reports or even recommendations for awards & medals.
If you would like to go that bit further we can also complete a lifetime Biography for the person you would like researched.

We also offer a free initial consultation to ascertain enough information is available to carry out a search on your behalf . At this point will also provide you with a research proposal which will estimate how many hours research might be required
For many years now Clare has provided invaluable genealogy research material of a professional high standard, in support of our remembrance work in relation to the loss of fallen airmen. This in turn has helped us to bring assistance and closure for many families.
Treehouse Genealogy has been an important addition to the collective work of our international team, and we look forward to our future work in this partnership, unravelling mysteries and recording previously untold details from the past together.

Looking for information about a Bomber Crew who were shot down over Berlin in 1941, the Secretary of the Association of 102 Bomber Squadron, put me in touch with Clare Wilson. I could not have asked for a better result as after Clare got into the matter, I received a wealth of information about the three Scottish crew members & I now know more about them & their families. What is particularly important to me are the approaches to further possible directions of investigation. I think it is these small, very important steps that are necessary to develop people's understanding of one another and to further promote the reconciliation of our peoples.
Personally, I am very happy to have such an excellent specialist among my friends.
Thank you Clare!

Clare, made the impossible possible. In my years of searching for family members of perished air crew members. She is the one who finds it, with great care so that I can tell the story behind these heroes..so that they will never be forgotten

Despite being involved in Family research for almost 20 years I had hit a brick wall when it came to my Great Uncle who had died serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force in WW2.
Clare came to the rescue using her wealth of knowledge concerning the RAF, her professional networks linked to Canada and her vast experience in Genealogy. And what a result, I couldn’t have imaged so much information existed.
Thank you on behalf of my wider family for bringing to life a man we never knew, but who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us all.
I can’t recommend the services of Treehouse Genealogy highly enough, a first class service.

Clare, thank you for the very extensive information about the crew of the Halifax MZ871 (102 Squadron) and a brilliant piece of research about the crew members.

Clare is the 102 (Ceylon) Squadron Association Archivist and carries out research for this World War 2 Association in her own time, beyond her professional work for client's researching their family history, to the benefit of our members and overseas researchers.
She completed a detailed and in depth project into those members of Bomber Command buried in the Churchyard of St. Catherine's Church, Barmby Moor, Yorkshire. Something very much appreciated by the families and an important document for local history.
Her many hours of research, which produces professional work, which is of the highest standard, and the empathy she shows in the presentation of it to her clients is frequently commented on.
