Family History

If you would like us to start your family history from scratch for you, pick up from where you've left off, or try to knock down some brick wall obstacle in your own research, we suggest you look at the details of our research packages then ask for a quote

But we also take on other types of project. Here are some other ways we might be able to help.

Archives

If you would just like us to so some specific piece of research for you in archives somewhere, we suggest you contact us to discuss your requirements. Based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, we have easy access to Gloucestershire Archives, but (subject to payment of reasonable travelling expenses) we are also happy to quote for visiting any other archives on your behalf.

We visit The National Archives, Kew several times per year and have considerable experience of working in their holdings, such as military records.  

We also visit the following record offices at frequent intervals:

  • Bristol Record Office
  • Wiltshire & Swindon Archives
  • Somerset Record Office
  • Worcestershire Archives
  • etc.

We are able to carry out simple lookups at Gloucestershire Archives starting from just £10. If you need a lookup done there or in other archive centre, contact us for a quote.

Tracing living people

If you are looking for a living person, perhaps a relative you have lost touch with, we have had considerable success with this in the past (see our Testimonials) and are happy to help.

However, if we are successful in tracing the person in question, you must accept that we will only put you in contact with them if they wish to be contacted. 

Other services

We also accept commissions from solicitors and others for probate research and similar enquiries such as tracing people in relation to issues connected with conveyancing and covenants

 

We have appropriate current professional indemnity insurance cover.
