Family Tree Package £250

The Family Tree package covers one surname traced back to 1837, which is when civil registration began. Depending on your age this will generally be 5 generations (allowing a typical 25 years per generation), so going back to your great-great-great grandfather.

At the end I will provide a comprehensive written report including a family tree chart. The report will include information such as address and occupation of the individuals, name of spouse and date of marriage, and names of the children of the marriage. The sources of the information and reference numbers for the record indexes are also included.

The size of the written report depends on how much information can be located (census returns, military records and other documentation), how many siblings there were and whether they married and had families. A report can be anything from as little as 9 pages up to perhaps 15. With the suppporting documents (census returns, marriage certificates, etc), the whole package may contain anything from around 40 to 60 pages.

The price includes copies of the relevant Census returns, and a maximum of 4 birth certificates and 4 marriage certificates. (It is assumed that you already know the details of your birth family, so only need certificates for up to 4 generations, starting with your grandfather.)

The package includes:

  • Detailed written report
  • Probate, military, criminal and other information where found
  • Family tree chart
  • Copies of the relevant Census returns
  • Copies of up to 4 birth certificates
  • Copies of up to 4 marriage certificates
  • County and Parish maps
  • Presentation binder

Optional extras

Potential additional costs

Obtaining copies of birth and marriage certificates is an essential step in verifying an individual's identity. If for some reason additional certificates are required to go back all the way to 1837 (for example, if you come from a line that tended to have children very young in life), these are chargeable at £9.25 each. In the event that this happens I will obviously contact you before incurring any additional costs.

Death certificates

If required I can provide death certificates. These are £9.25 each.


I may also be able to provide additional detail for noteworthy individuals on your tree. I can also trace the tree back before 1837. If you are interested in these services, please let me know.


Dead ends

Please bear in mind that despite all best efforts, sometimes individuals may not be traceable. In this event, only a proportion of the fee will be payable, depending on the amount of work completed.


All information obtained during the course of my research will be treated with the strictest of confidence and will not be passed to any third party without your consent.
