- This is a subscription based service where we build your ancestral tree over time in much the same way as we build our own.
- Subscriptions can be started and stopped at any time. If we think we have exhausted available records we will stop taking the subscription.
- We will research one surname at a time from your ancestral lines. Research as many names as you like but one at a time.
- We do not generally carry out research on living relatives. The only exception is if we are providing services related to DNA investigations where consent has been provided.
- Bespoke reports can be provided where there are time constraints such as in cases of probate and inheritance. Contact us if you have a specific requirement and we will be pleased to provide a quotation and timescale.
How much will it cost?
Are there extra costs?
Yes there can be. The cost of birth, marriage and death certificates that are needed to provide evidence. The cost of these varies according to type and the country in which the event was registered. It helps if you already have certificates for your most recent ancestors, ie parents, grandparents and siblings. And, of course, your own.
Other records that may incur additional costs are some military records and wills not available online. We will always explain why records are required and the costs involved. We will not order any documents without your agreement.
Many of us are intrigued and want to know more about our ancestors. What did they do? Did they suffer? Where did they live? Did they have money? If they did what happened to it? Were there criminals in my family? Were they famous or notorious?
For this type of research it is common is to quote a price for a project. For example, a package of research might be a four-generation report for one person with a fixed price. For the client that can be rather frustrating since it can leave unanswered questions followed by the need for another proposal and another quote for a fixed charge. The alternative is an hourly rate, but the nature of research makes it is impossible to say in advance how long things will take and it is unlikely to be a satisfactory approach in many circumstances.
Where time is of the essence, in cases of probate and inheritance for example, this is probably the best option but for general family history there is a better way that is fairer to both the client and the professional genealogist.
That is with a monthly subscription. You will be able to stop the subscription at any time. If we feel we have reached the end of the road – or perhaps top of the tree with a line of enquiry we will tell you and will stop taking payments.
