I am happy to undertake professional research at all the record repositories and
libraries in Cheshire and neighbouring counties.
I can offer a range of services, from simply looking up births, marriages and death
records, or census records to providing a family tree along with a comprehensive
report on your family’s history; this would contain with copies of any relevant documents
as an appendix. Perhaps I can trace your sixteen great great-grandparents for you!
I can also provide an advice and assistance service to those undertaking their own
family history research and have hit a ‘brick wall’. Having a great deal of knowledge
about Cheshire sources I can perhaps point you in the right direction!
If you wish I can help by searching parish records or locating a place where your
ancestors lived. You may want me to just check probate records to find a will or
trace an ancestor’s military service record.
Initial contact can be made by e-mail and then by e-mail or telephone to take detailed
instructions. Once I have established what’s involved in providing a service I shall
require an initial deposit of one hour’s work and give a quote for the time expected
to deliver the results.
I shall communicate regularly and once finished will send
out the reports, when full payment will be requested. No payment will be taken if I
In all cases my rates are very competitive at only £15 per hour. Normally about four
hours will produce significant results , but if one hour is all that is necessary
- that will be fine. When I report back on the progress made, you can decide whether
or not you would like me to proceed further. There will be no obligation to do so.
