What I do

Single lookup search

Looking for documents to be checked or perhaps a Parish Register entry you have found, a lookup service is available £10 per hour (minimum of 30 mins) plus copies of any documents at cost.  The lookup service is also available for photographing of documents, headstones and places of interest which relate to your ancestors.

Any photography fees/licences charged by organisations are passed on at cost.

Hourly Rate Research

Rates for hourly work are a competitive £20 per hour, I would usually recommend an initial purchase of 5 hours work, but if you require as little as an hour that can be accommodated too.

Any Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates or copies of other documents are charged at cost. No charge is made for travel to local archives within 50 miles of my home location.

Printed Family Tree Service

For the Elm or Oak Packages I can arrange for a printed family tree to be professionally produced, these are priced from £40 dependent on size and number of lines to be included. Contact me for further details.

Consultation Service

Many people want to research their family history themselves, but they don’t know how to start or are confused by the information out there, or they have started, but have found that they have hit a “brick wall”. If this is you, then contact me and I will see what I can do to help. For those yet to start I will advise you on what you need to do, with one to one sessions if that would help (dependent on location). For those who have come to a stop, I can look at what you have found to date, suggest sources that could be searched, and their whereabouts in the UK.

Costs

Charges are at the same rate per hour as for ancestry research.
