Here are just a few of the kind things that people said about us after we did work for them.

The best testimonial of all is the number of new clients we acquire by word of mouth and recommendations from other customers.

Words cannot express my gratitude to Peter Clifford of Forefathers for the expert way in which he broke through the research impasse that I had reached after my ten years of research into our family tree.  It quite amazed me how quickly he gathered together the threads of my family story, found the missing links that I had not been able to unearth and then pushed back two more centuries to around 1600.  I felt totally comfortable working with Peter to work out pricing for each step of the way.  He is a master genealogical researcher who provides real value for money.

In a very short time Peter managed to not only identify my natural family, but he also sensitively liaised with them to open the doors to communication.  I was appraised of progress all the way through the search, and was given concrete suggestions as to how we might be able to find the answers we were looking for.  I have now connected to family I never knew I had and that is in no small measure thanks to Peter's help. Thank You.

Having spent many years unsuccessfully attempting to trace my paternal grandfather through conventional and online methods, I had given up hope of delving into my family history.
 
However, within a few weeks of Peter's commencing his research, he had found the elusive family member, using methods and lines of enquiry I would never have contemplated.

I would highly recommend Peter's services for anyone looking for a professional and friendly service and first class research methods.

I am thrilled at how quickly (and convincingly) Peter Clifford of Forefathers was able to break through a brick wall that had I myself could not after literally a hundred hours of probing census, bmd records, and internet searching.

My only regret is not reaching out sooner as I would have saved time AND the money I spent on several birth certificates using the assumed name.

Pete wove the whole thing together, using up all of the available facts (including wills and deeds) that left me without any doubt as to the identity of my ancestor.
