Researching Family History

Starting out

:: Initially, ancestrace will carry out a free consultation to understand your exact requirements, what your budget is and timescale for the project if it's intended as a gift.

:: We'll then prepare a written appraisal of your requirements stating what we propose to do for you and the costs involved.

:: When you're happy with our proposal and we've received confirmation of acceptance along with payment, we'll commence the research project.

:: The best way to get started is to purchase one of our specific research projects.

:: Alternatively if you already know some of your family tree and would like us to do further research into a specific branch of your tree you can purchase research hours.



:: Throughout the project we'll keep you informed of our progress with regular updates.

:: We'll search through all available archives and records to trace your ancestors.

:: Where possible we'll obtain official copies of documents as proof of lineage. These will be passed on to you on completion and images of them will be included in the finished product.


Photographs & Documents

:: If you have any relevant pictures of people, places or interesting documents etc. These can be included in the finished product.

:: Visiting and taking photographs and videos of relevant churches, monument inscriptions and former family homes is something that can be done when requested.


Ancestry Research


:: When your initial research project is complete, you'll have an excellent point from which you can take your research further.

:: You decide whether to continue going back in time, concentrate on one part of your tree or move forward to present times to discover living relatives.

:: If you choose not to continue we'll close the project and prepare a detailed written report on the findings of the research. 

:: It will include details of your ancestors, such as occupations, where they were born, military service, an index of names and a family tree chart. There'll be images of  census entries and certified copies of original Birth, Marriage and Death certificates, along with any other images you have supplied or requested.
