This budget package is suitable if you would like a simple overview only of your family history, presented primarily as a family tree with explanatory notes. It is more limited than the in-depth options, but you also have the opportunity of adding to the range of historical sources or branches traced.
Prices start at £200
Level One Package
For those who would like to research one branch of their family in more depth.
We will trace the history back from one ancestor of your choice (e.g. your paternal grandfather), to around the early years of the 19th century, and will present the history in the form of a detailed narrative.
Prices start at £320
Level Two Package
Our most popular package, it involves researching two branches, following them from the ancestors of your choice (e.g. your maternal grandfather and grandmother) back to around 1800 and, when sources allow, back into the late 18th century. The history will be presented in a detailed narrative.
Choose from a soft-back family history book or unbound option.
Prices start at £530
This package is the most comprehensive option. It presents the history in a detailed narrative and researches all traceable stems back to around the late 18th century or, when sources allow, further back into the 18th century.
Choose from a hard-back family history book or unbound option.
Prices start at £760

Tailor-made Research Packages and Outline Searches
We recommend a Tailor-made Package if:
you want to research specific generations;
if the research starts at an event which took place during the mid or first half of the 19th century
if you wish to trace descendants (see Probate & Living Relatives section)
you need some specific information on one or more ancestors (e.g. research into a particular event in your ancestor's life that may be reported in a newspaper article or court case)
We have several tiers of 'Outline Searches' (such as an appraisal of research already carried out, or an investigatation of an initial set of records to gauge the potential for more in-depth research). As the amount of research and time required to carry out this type of work will vary, please contact us and we will provide you with an estimate. Currently, hourly costs start at £25 (which includes travel), dependent on the nature and complexity of the research, with certificates and copies of documents charged at cost.
