Family Tree Packages

I offer a range of fixed-price packages to suit all research requirements and every budget. With all family tree packages I will use civil birth, marriage and death records, parish baptism, marriage and burial records, census returns and other records to trace the root person’s ancestors. The root person may be the person placing the order, their partner, a parent, other relative, friend etc. Using these records I will build up an accurate and detailed picture of the root person’s ancestors' lives. Where possible I will provide details of when and where their ancestors were born, where they lived, what they did for a living, when and where they were married, details of their spouses and children, and when and where they died.

When research is complete you will receive a leather-look springback binder containing:

  • Source information - details of the sources I use and the information they contain
  • Ancestor report - detailed listing of family information presented in an easy-to-understand narrative format
  • Birth and marriage certificates (England & Wales only) - certified copies of birth and marriage certificates for the main line ancestors
  • Statutory record images (Scotland only) - images of statutory birth, marriage and death records for the main line ancestors
  • Census record images - images of 1841-1911 census records and 1939 Register (England & Wales only) for the main line ancestors and their families
  • Other record images - images of any other records for the main line ancestors, where available
  • Ancestor tree chart - tree chart showing all direct line ancestors found

For examples of documents and records please see the sample documents page. You will also receive a CD-ROM containing digital copies of the above documents, images of records obtained, and a GEDCOM file of your family tree. GEDCOM is the standard file format for genealogy software, and GEDCOM files can be imported into most genealogy computer software. The family tree will also be uploaded to the family trees section of this website.

Package Types

I offer three different levels of package: Bronze, Silver and Gold. With each package I trace all lines of the root person’s ancestors back a specific number of generations, depending on the level of the package. Details of the different packages I offer are shown below:

Bronze Package - £139 £125

If you order a Bronze Package I will trace all lines of the root person back four generations (including the root person). An ancestor report and ancestor tree chart showing the ancestors of the root person will be produced. The ancestor report, certificates, images and ancestor chart will be presented in a leather-look springback binder containing typically 50+ pages. The family tree will also be uploaded to the family trees page. The estimated completion time is 3-4 weeks.
