1) LUXURY PACKAGE
I will provide you with a typed report on the history of your ancestors with full transcriptions of all birth, marriage and death records and census records found as far back as the records allow, along with relevant social history and photographs of the actual streets and houses where your ancestors lived. I will also provide you with family trees for your ancestors. This makes an ideal birthday or anniversary present. The package is sent to you by post in presentation folders.
The luxury package for either your paternal line (ie your father’s line) or your maternal line (ie your mother’s line) would cost £180 and take 3 months to complete.
The luxury package for both your paternal and maternal lines would cost £350 and take 6 months to complete.
2) STANDARD PACKAGE
I will provide you with a typed report on the history of your ancestors including the dates and places of their births, marriages and deaths along with family trees for all your ancestors. This also makes a good birthday or anniversary present. (Please note the standard package does not include any certificate transcriptions or photos). The package is sent to you by e-mail or by post in a presentation folder.
The standard package for either your paternal line (ie your father’s line) or your maternal line (ie your mother’s line) would cost £130 and take 3 months to complete.
The standard package for both your paternal and maternal lines would cost £250 and take 6 months to complete.
3) OTHER RESEARCH POSSIBILITIES
If you have a family history query that doesn’t fit in one of the above packages, please get in touch – I will let you know if I can help and what my fee would be.
Here are some examples of research that I have undertaken for previous clients to give you an idea of what I can do for you.
Have you ever wondered what your ancestor did during World War 1? Perhaps I can help? If your ancestor served in the Army, Royal Flying Corps, Royal Navy, Royal Naval Division or Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, I can give you a full transcription of all surviving personnel records. For Army service, I require a full name, date of birth and regimental number (generally from the edge of a medal) – for all other services, all I need is a full name and date of birth.
Perhaps you have done some research of your own and you have come up against a ‘brick wall’? Perhaps there is one person in your family in whom you are particularly interested, e.g. one of your great-grandparents, or somebody with an interesting life in your family? I can look into your ‘brick wall’ or your specific issue.
Perhaps you only require a birth, marriage or death record?
My minimum fee for any of the above enquiries would be £30, please contact me to discuss a specific query as my fee is variable depending on the amount of research required. The length of time to complete the enquiry would generally be between 3 weeks and 3 months depending on the specific enquiry.
4) 1:1 TUITION
Are you thinking about researching your family tree but you don’t know where to start? Would you be interested in one to one tuition with a professional genealogist and I can explain to you how to start your Scottish, English or Irish research? If you live in the central belt of Scotland, why not take advantage. I am available to meet you at the weekends in Glasgow, Dunfermline or Edinburgh and early evenings during the week in Edinburgh.
The first hour of my time is free and you would receive free guidance notes on researching your Scottish, English or Irish family tree. Each subsequent hour of my time would be £30 per hour.
Please also see the ‘How to pay and other important things’ page if you are interested in any of the above. All prices quoted above are as at 1 January 2019. All fees agreed prior to 1 January 2019 are still valid as agreed.
