FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

By hiring a professional you eliminate the painstaking work and can be completely confident in the accuracy of the research.

Q. CAN I GET ADDITIONAL COPIES OF MY FAMILY HISTORY REPORT?
A. We often get requests for additional copies of our Family History Reports to be given as gifts to other members of the family. We can produce a duplicate binder, personalised to anyone named within the original report, at a cost of £75 per copy.
Q. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN'T FIND ONE OF MY ANCESTORS?
A. Our goal is to trace your direct ancestors back four generations to your Great-Great-Grandparents. However, no professional can guarantee to find an ancestor.
Sometimes the records are simply not there or we cannot be sure in proving a link. We will always only give you information we are sure of.
If we are unable to complete a line of research we will offer the choice of a refund, on a pro-rata basis, or suggest another avenue of research to you.
Q. HOW LONG WILL THE RESEARCH TAKE?
A. Genealogical research takes time and we may have to obtain copies of official certificates to progress the research. We also carefully document our research, prepare family trees and write family stories.
It may take 10 to 12 weeks to complete a Family History Report, longer during peak times. If you are ordering a Family History as a gift and so need it for a specific date we will do our very best to accommodate you. If this is not possible we can prepare a personalised gift letter to be presented to the recipient informing them of the commission.
Q. CAN YOU GO BACK FURTHER IN TIME?
A.. We may be able to trace some of your family lines further back in time than your Great Great Grandparents. We will have a good idea if this is possible after completing the initial research. No guarantees can be made as it will depend on the the family in question and what records have survived for the area where they were living.
A deposit of 50% is payable on commencement of the research. The balance is due on completion. For our Complete Family History Packages payment may be made in four instalments.
Payment may be made in GB Pounds sterling by bank transfer, debit/credit card or via Paypal.
