History Repeating was launched in December 2007 as the genealogy companion blog to the website Family Tree UK by Cambridgeshire-based genealogist and writer Andrew Martin.

In 2013, the authorship was extended to begin to include other bloggers and writers who have genealogical and historical interests predominantly in Cambridgeshire, England.

Andrew Martin is a member of The Guild of One-Name Studies, and is the surname registrant for international research into the Yarrow surname. He is also a member of the Federation of Genealogical Societies Outreach Committee.
