Family History Research Package
My family history packages are a great starting point to discover your ancestors. As they are presented as a bound hardback book, they make a great family heirloom, or a wonderful gift for a special birthday, wedding, anniversary, Christmas present or other special occasion.
The books are not just cheap print-outs from a family history computer program. They contain a hand-written research report, with integral charts, photos, transcripts and of course details about your ancestors' lives. All facts are properly cited and referenced against the source of the documents.
Although every family is different, I am likely to trace your English, Welsh or Scottish family tree back around 200 years to the early 1800s. This does depend on how much you already know and what records have survived. The cost of the package depends on the number of lines being researched, with my popular single surname package starting at just £280.
If these packages do not meet your needs, then take a look at my bespoke research options. Alternatively, you can use the package as a starting point, and then add to it, for example to research back further. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
If you wish to find out more, you can take a look at my case study page.
