How it works

The things I can find out for you will depend on what you are interested in. You may be interested in tracing a single line back as far as possible. I would usually expect to be able to trace your family tree back to the late 18th century. Alternatively, you may be interested in following multiple lines and finding out about the brother, sisters and lives of your ancestors.

Preparing family history is not something that can be done overnight.  It takes time to send off for certificates and search records. You can expect the whole process to take some weeks, but I will send you regular updates so you know where things are up to.

Please contact me and I will arrange a time where we can discuss what you are looking to find out about your family tree and the budget that you are working within. This initial discussion is free of charge and is without obligation.

After that, I charge £25 per hour for time spent researching and documenting your history. All certificates are charged at cost, and I will charge £10 for travel to records offices within North West England if that is necessary.
