Bespoke research

Hourly rate


Research is available by the hour and can be tailored to your requirements.


The number of research hours can be fixed or flexible to suit your budget. 


Examples of research requirements could be tracing a family line as far back as possible, selecting a number of generations to be researched, an in-depth study of one ancestor, or your family history told as a readable story.


More unusual options are the history of your house, the story of an ancestor's emigration, or preparation for a visit to your ancestral homeland.

Narrative report

Your family history told as a readable story.

This can include historical events to give context and family photographs if desired.


Whether you live in a worker's cottage, a tenement, or a stately home, a house history will reveal who lived there, their stories, and how the building was used.

Books & Prints

Your family tree as a beautiful print or your family history in a book, customised for you. These make wonderful keepsakes or personalised gifts.
