Peter Calver provided the original inspiration for LostCousins, and is currently Managing Director of Lost Cousins Ltd.

In 1978 he founded one of the first companies to publish software for home computers, and this grew to become one of the UK's leading developers of sports simulations - and the world's leading developer of cricket games. One of Peter's most prized possessions is a cricket bat signed for him by Brian Lara - and his proudest moment was when he shook hands with Sir Stanley Matthews for the first time.

After selling the software development business Peter studied at the Open University Business School, gaining an MBA in 1999. Since then he has been running Innovations Unlimited, a creativity consultancy, and researching his family tree. Peter has been interviewed on radio or TV many times, and occasionally gives short talks on family history.
