Genealogy & family history research

Every family has a history, but not everyone has the time or resources to carry out the searching themselves. We have over 20 years' experience in tracing families and we are here to help you get to the next step in your own research. Starting with a simple questionnaire, we can sketch your family tree in as much detail as you like. You then choose the level of detail you want. Our main focus is on the British Isles but we also research families from South Africa, India, the USA and mainland Europe.

We usually suggest an initial block of research based on your requirements, which can then be added to after the first report. Gifts can be tailored to your own budget and interests too.

Do get in touch for an initial chat and we will then prepare a tailored quote.

Payments accepted by bank transfer or PayPal.

Lost in census?

England and Wales carried out meaningful censuses from 1841 but the way they have been transcribed recently means that sometimes people or whole families seem to just 'disappear'.

Using tricks we have acquired over the years, we can help you find your missing relative and provide images to enhance your research.

Pre-1837 research

The government first introduced civil registration of births, marriages and deaths in 1837, but that doesn't mean that your ancestors' life events weren't recorded before then.

We use tried and tested ways to track down that elusive ancestor through parish records, rate books, newspaper cuttings and many more sources.
