Family Research packages

My research packages may appear more expensive than many offered by other family historians, however my packages are different in that the price is all inclusive of the cost of obtaining birth, marriage and death certificates* for each ancestor, which are essential to ensure the accuracy of the research. The price also includes copies of Wills/Probate records for each ancestor (where possible) and a fully documented narrative report and family tree chart.

PRe 19TH Century research packageS

Pre 19th Century records include (but are not limited to):

  • Parish chest records (Parish Registers of Baptism, Marriage and Burial, along with Parish Records such as vestry minutes and poor law records)
  • Church court records
  • Manorial court records
  • Civil court records
  • Criminal court records
  • Wills and Probate records

Whilst many of these records may be available online for certain areas and limited periods, generally such records are not and a visit to the archives is usually required. Packages are agreed on hours of research to be undertaken rather than number of generations to be researched and can be used for researching an individual or a family line.

Packages include a fully documented report, supporting records and family tree chart (were appropriate), the cost of travel and any costs associated with taking copies/photographs of supporting records.
