  • Tips on how to expand your research
  • If required to confirm an ancestor up to 4 birth/marriage certificates (charged at cost, birth £7 for a pdf copy, or £11 depending on the date. All marriages are currently £11) – to an additional maximum of £29.* 
  • If more are required depending on the complexity of the families concerned I will be in touch to discuss.

To obtain the most out of this research ideally you know the name of at least one parent / grandparent and they will have been born in England.
