A family business offering research and assistance with your family history at affordable prices

Covid-19 Update July 2020

Record Offices are now starting to reopen but with restricted services, and most are asking visitors to order all documents in advance. This obviously limits the amount of research that can usefully be carried out in archives at present. The General Register Office are also asking us to only order certificates if the order is urgent. Please contact us for further information, or see my Facebook page for regular updates. I am in the meantime happy to carry out research online. Please note that the special offer of research @ £15 per hour will expire at the end of August 2020.
