MY SERVICES

I regularly visit archives throughout Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, and specialise in these areas. I also research throughout the United Kingdom.

I will provide transcripts of documents and copies where these are available; examples searched include:

· Birth/Marriage/Death records
· Census records throughout the UK for 1841-1911
· Census records for the USA & Canada
· Passenger & Immigration Lists
· Military Records
· Hearth Tax Records
· Monumental Inscriptions
· Manorial Documents
· Parish Chest documents (e.g. settlement orders, bastardy bonds, poor law records)
· Quarter Sessions records

The above list is not exhaustive. Research can range from lookups in various archives, to researching a particular name, extracting entries from registers or other documents, as well as more in depth research.

All research is written up as an easy to read report; or in the case of a Family History as a book, illustrated with old photos, census transcripts, maps, family trees, etc. [where available]. I can also supply a printed Family Tree either on canvas or paper depending on your wishes which would be charged at cost.

I charge £22 per hour and can start any search from just three hours research. Free consultation is offered and I will always liaise with you if I think further research is possible/needed. Payment is usually due in advance, though can be made in two halves, one on commencement and one on completion, where agreed. Various at cost charges may apply, including birth/marriage/death certificates (where needed), currently £9.25; photocopying; digital photography and other costs extra to the research (these will be agreed with you beforehand).

A range of Family History packages are available and these range from:

Full Family History – researching all family lines, including connecting families as far back as can be found; writing this up as a book, including information on local and national history, information on occupations of ancestors, maps of local areas, and any pictures/photographs that are relevant – cost is £1000, payable in two halves, £500 on commencement and £500 on completion.

Family History of one family line – e.g. maternal or paternal line, includes all connecting families as far back as can be found; writing this up as a book, including information on local and national history, information on occupations of ancestors, maps of local areas, and any pictures/photographs that are relevant – cost is £700, payable in two halves, £350 on commencement and £350 on completion.

Family History starting with you, mother, father etc, and tracing back to all sixteen great great grandparents (where can be found); writing this up as a book, including information on local and national history, information on occupations of ancestors, maps of local areas, and any pictures/photographs that are relevant – cost is £600, payable in two halves, £300 on commencement and £300 on completion.

All Family History packages are presented in a hardback spring back folder with Family History embossed on the front.

Gift vouchers are also available and these start from as little as £60 for three hours research; contact me for more details.

I will always try to exhaust the various possibilities in the search for your ancestor(s), but sometimes it has to be recognised that the historical sources are inadequate or may not have survived, and it is sometimes not possible to go further with a particular lineage.
