We aim to offer our clients a tailor made research package suited to their needs.   This may involved a complete study of a Relatives Service or perhaps just checking a few documents.

We offer a FREE Consultation to ascertain that enough information is available to carry out a search on your behalf.  We will then send you a research proposal which will detail what will be checked, how long this might take & the costs involved.  Our current hourly rate is £25 per hour, with any costs for documents or printing being charge at cost. 

The results will be provided in a Professional report which will include details of the sources used/checked & copies of documents where available.

We regularly work in Partnership with Sarah Minney a Professional Genealogist based near The National Archives in Kew.   This Mutual Partnership means that we are also able to offer a record checking & copying service via Sarah & our small research team. 

We also collaborate with Kerstin Devine, a native German speaker & qualified English/German AITI translator. Kerstin can provide German document transcripts/ translations & interpreting services should this be required as part of your research.
