Since writing Meet Your Ancestors, Diane Marelli has gone on to expand on her own research and has traced a branch of her family history as far back as 1565, one of her husband's to 1610 and various other branches on both sides deep into the 1700s. As a result of her growing expertise she has been asked to investigate genealogical data for television, the press and members of the public who do not have time to explore their heritage but would like to know more, or present a family history as a gift. She also runs workshops and speaks regularly to small groups and societies on tracing family lineage (www.dianemarelli.co.uk).
