Bespoke research services.

I am happy to take on commissions of all sizes from simple enquiries to more complex investigations. Working backwards from you and your known relatives I can trace your family through history to create a pedigree tree. If you have hit a brick wall in your own research I will endeavour to help you overcome it using my experience and genealogical knowledge. If a family member has passed on research and you would like it organised I am happy to assist. Please enquire as the first consultation is free.
Family Tree Report
Genealogy is the construction of familial relationships mainly from records. A Kinsfolk Family History Services family report goes beyond this and will not only include copies of documents but will also place your ancestors in their social context. Records consulted may include parish registers, census returns, service records, directories, newspapers and probate records. The report will detail all avenues of research whether successful or not. It will comprise of a copy of a descendant tree, family group sheets, information about occupations and particulars of any relevant places.
What can be traced?
There are no guarantees as to how far back a family tree can be traced. There are many factors which can affect research such as the survival and condition of documents, illegible handwriting, migration patterns, common surnames, are examples of some of the things that can impact research. Generally it is possible to trace a family back to the beginning of the 1800s though there are no guarantees. Beyond this research becomes more difficult and time consuming. The length of time required to compile a report is dependent upon how quickly documents are located and the type of research requested.
