Family tree packages

If you do not have the time to carry out research or prefer someone to do it for you I provide a number of professional quality family tree packages for you to chose from and each can be customised to suit your needs.  Each family history is compiled by tracing the births, marriages and deaths of direct ancestors.  The certificates purchased are then used in combination with the 1841-1911 census records to enhance an ancestor's story by finding information about them and their closest relatives.  Each family history package will include:

  • a narrative of your family story extracted from the above records
  • background notes on your family's location from contemporary records
  • a guide to the records consulted
  • an interpretation of research findings
  • family tree(s) - A4
  • birth marriage and death certificates purchase
  • copies of documents
  • suggestions for further research
  • presentation folder

Please browse below the packages on offer and if you would like to go ahead then read next steps and contact me to commission your research.


Single generation package- £295

If you want to find out about your ancestors but do not know where to start then this is the package for you. The package focuses on tracing information about one generation of your family starting from an ancestoral couple of your choice, for example, your grandparents and their siblings.  Please allow up to 8 weeks for completion.  This package includes:

  • Up to 12 hours research/analysis/report writing
  • Up to 5 certificates


Direct line package - £695

Includes researching one surname as far back as post civil registration and census records allow starting with an individual of your choice.  Each spouse of a direct ancestor is detailed and siblings are identified.  For completion of the family story, information on more recent generations can be added from documents provided by the client.  Please allow up to 16 weeks for completion.  This package includes:

  • Up to 30 hours research/analysis/report writing
  • Up to 15 certificates


Ancestral package - £1295

Find all eight great grandparents and their families.  Research back from an individual of your choice, considering direct lines back to all eight great grandparents - seven couples and their families. For completion of the family story, information on more recent generations can be added from documents provided by the client. Please allow up to 20 weeks for completion.  This package includes:

  • Up to 60 hours research/analysis/report writing
  • Up to 30 certificates 


Further generations - £245

For any of the above packages any additional generation can be researched and added to the family history.


Once you have received your family tree package then you may wish to continue your search either for more ancestors, or to broaden out the information on those already found, or you may wish to leave your family story as found - the choice is yours.

If you wish to continue then research can be by the hour (see bespoke research), in this way you may stipulate the direction you wish to continue and the budget available for the project.

Please note: if you wish to create a full ancestral family history, then as a professional genealogist, I would encourage the purchase of all certificates relating to your direct ancestors (potentially 5 per married couple). If this is not to a clients wishes, this can be negotiated, but this does risk a far from comprehensive family history being compiled and more importantly, potentially the wrong family being researched!

Testimonial (Georgian Package):
