I will trace the lineage of the ancestor of your choice as far back as it can accurately be researched. This would typically be the early 1800s or late 1700s. I will only present information that can be supported with documentation, and I will provide sources.
What to expect to be included in your one-family line research package:
up to 10 BMD certificates (obtained from the GRO)
25 hours research time*
relevant census returns, parish register extracts and entries, and any other relevant documents including newspaper articles (if applicable)
military, local history (providing context)
research report (narratives for direct ancestors)
addresses and places your ancestors lived
images, maps and more
A3 family tree chart
flash drive (pre-loaded with all research)
advice and tips
padded family tree binder to hold all your certificates and any other documentation I find during the research process. The binder comes with pocket sleeves. The binder and pocket sleeves are specifically designed to hold family history certificates and other documentation. You can choose the colour of your binder when ordering.
Binder colours : Blue, Green, Black, Burgundy
*Research time does not include the time it takes to type up the research report, or the time it takes to travel to a local record office. It is the actual time spent researching the line you have purchased.
I will need the birth dates and birthplaces of your parents and I will also need details of your grandparents for the line you would like me to research. Please provide as much information as you can.
For example, if you wish me to research your maternal grandmother's line, I would need your mother's birth details and your maternal grandparents' details. I would then trace your maternal grandmother's paternal line (maiden name) and her maternal line. In other words, I won't just trace one surname.
I offer more hours of research for each package so that I can do extensive research.
I will send an invoice via PayPal asking for 50% of the package fee to be paid before research begins. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay through PayPal. You will be sent a separate invoice for the remaining 50% (balance) which is to be paid once the research package is ready to be dispatched. Once full payment has been received the research package will be dispatched to you.
If you would like to upgrade to a two-family line or four-family line research package, you have the option to do so at any time. Please email me first to discuss the package you wish to upgrade to.
You can make a cancellation before research is completed and you will only be charged for the research I have already undertaken, including any purchases that I have already made to further the research. This includes my time researching, BMD certificates and other documents.
For further information about cancellations and refunds, please refer to my Terms and Conditions.
You should expect the delivery of your research package to be approximately 12 weeks (for a one-family line research package). This is an approximate time only and may change if there are delays for any reason. You will be updated if there is a delay.
It includes research time, waiting for certificates to arrive from the GRO, as well as visiting record offices (if applicable), and typing up your research report.
Deliveries outside the UK will incur an extra cost (the price that it will cost for your research to be delivered to you). This will not apply if you prefer your research to be emailed to you.
You will receive updates via email on progress made.
Your personal information will be kept safe and will never be passed to a third party. Your postal address will only be used to ship your research report, documents, certificates and binder. I will also post the research form to you, if requested.
Your email address will be used to update you on research progress and to let you know when research has been completed and your research bundle is on it's way to you.
