Can I have my whole tree researched – all generations and as far back as
If you simply want to find out as much as possible about your entire
family then it would be best to agree on a certain number of hours in advance,
after which time we revise what has been achieved, and therefore can assess
together how to proceed further if desired, taking into consideration any
priorities you may have.
Can I have just one surname line researched?
If you are particularly interested in knowing the ancestors who, for
example, shared your own surname, this is a much cheaper option than
researching the entire family.
Can I simply discover more about one particular ancestor?
You may have an ancestor who is known or rumoured to be special in some
way – perhaps they were somewhat famous or notorious or rich? It may be
possible to construct a mini biography of the person.
What can I expect to discover?
There can be no fixed guarantees but what you can expect to find out
about a person is roughly the following :
Basic information : First name, surname, married name, date of birth or
christening, date of marriage, date of death or burial, occupations, addresses
lived at, names of siblings.
Supplementary information : Extra details could include newspaper articles, business information, property
details, prison records, wills, armed forces information.
What will I receive?
I will generally provide the following :
- A detailed and comprehensive report (pdf file) of what was researched, what was found, what was not
found, and descriptions of sources used.
- Paper copies of any purchased certificates
- Electronic copies or screen shots of the information found online
- A tree diagram (pdf file) showing your ancestors
