Archival Research

Once the basic ancestry is in place, there is a wealth of archival materal available - this will bring your family story to life.  Copies of historic documents such as testaments, inventories, deeds, tax records, valuation rolls, kirk session records, etc, can be supplied to illustrate your report.

£25 per hour, copies extra at cost

 

Social and Local History

Your ancestry study will cover around 150-200 years.  Explanations of what was going on in the area and in general will help you understand the circumstances of your family - why did they move around?; why did they not move around?; why did they disappear?  why is their marriage not recorded? - these are just a few of the questions you might ask.

£25 per hour, copies extra at cost

 

Living Relative Search

Once you receive your ancestry report, you may wonder what happened to the non-direct line members of the family.  You may wish to make an ancestral tour of your roots and hope to meet long-lost relatives.  This is a very satisfying option.

£25 per hour

You will receive a professional ancestry report, along with copies of relevant documents, if requested.  A descendant chart will accompany the report.
