FAQ
All of our packages will include a comprehensive biography of the main ancestors. These are the ancestors from whom you are directly descendent. i.e. your father, grandfather, great-grandfather, etc. Basic information such as birth and death years will be given as a minimum (where possible) for all other members of the studied line/lines. Where appropriate for the narrative, we will include further biographical information for other members of the family tree.

We will always strive to trace back the relevant line/lines as far as possible. In most cases we will be able to trace your ancestors back to at least the early to mid-1800s, but often a bit farther back than this. There are times when this may not be possible for various reasons, and if that is the case then we will inform you as soon as possible. Prior to undertaking any work, we will carry out a cursory search through the main documents in order to determine whether or not it is possible to trace your ancestry back. This search is carried out free of charge.

In addition to our research packages, we also offer bespoke research tailored to answer whatever questions you may have regarding your ancestors. This research will normally be carried out at our hourly rate of £20. The same rate applies if you want us to proof read a family tree that you have already created. Whatever your research needs may be, we will always provide you with a time estimate before the work is commissioned and we will keep you updated about any potential changes.
