How Does it Work

How Does It Work?

Whether you are interested in one ancestor, one surname line or full tree research of several generations, I can start work with as little information as a name and place/date of birth. The more information you can provide on top of that, the better!

If you have parents’ and grandparents’ names, places they lived, any dates (even approximate ones), occupations, military service, family stories and skeletons in cupboards – all of this is relevant!

For specific questions, brick walls, DNA analysis or pre-Victorian research, again as much information as you can provide, however tenuous it may be, will be useful.

Please do not send original documents as support for family history research or for transcriptions – photocopies, digital photos or scans are just fine.

All research projects will be charged at an hourly rate, plus expenses at cost price. Discounts are available for larger commissions of 10+ hours or for returning clients.

We can meet in person and/or correspond by email, video conferencing, post or phone.

I sometimes have a waiting list, but you will be given an indication of when work will start. I will also provide regular updates of my findings.

No request is too small – do get in contact for a free, no-obligation quote.
