Family History Research
I would love to research your family tree for you.
I have access to all the usual genealogical sources: census, birth marriage and death, online parish registers, First World War military records, immigration records, local newspapers. I also have a lot of books and sources available in my personal collection. I will order copies of birth, marriage and death certificates where necessary. I will not be doing all the research from my desk though, I will visit local archives, libraries, cemeteries or churchyards.
I keep my costs simple so that you don't need to worry about any hidden charges. Some genealogists charge extra for travel, copies of certificates etc meaning you are never sure what the final bill will be. For my bespoke research, I charge a flat rate of £20 an hour. The only additional charge might be if you decide to have a hard copy (or copies) of the report and tree. In this case I will pass on the same amount that my printers charge me. You can also choose one of my Family History Packages and the same rules apply, no additional costs apart from production of reports.
I now offer gift vouchers for my bespoke research and my family history packages.
I will keep you updated as the research goes on. At the end of the project I will provide you with a written report, fully referenced, in pdf format. A professionally bound copy can also be provided on request. A printed family tree can be provided, depending on the size of the tree this will be an extra cost.
To get started what I need from you is everything you already know about your family. If you have birth/marriage/death certificates then I will need copies of these. If you live within 20 miles or so of Lincoln then we can get together, socially distanced, and talk through your requirements and I can take photographs of your documents. What is also useful to know are details of any family stories that you might want me to look into.
If you don't need a full family tree researching but just a bit of help with a brickwall get in touch.
