Research Roots offers a range of beautifully presented research packages tailored to suit different requirements and budgets.  Whether you intend to commission research for yourself or as a gift, each package has been designed to provide a detailed overview of your family tree.

Our packages typically cover five generations going back to your great-great-grandparents and include details of names, key dates, occupations, military service, places of residence and so forth. It is of course difficult to predict in advance what we will uncover. Much depends on the family and where they lived. We use a variety of records including census returns, indexes of births, marriages and deaths, parish records, contemporary newspapers and obituaries, military service and pension records, local directories and probate records. Our packages do not usually include copies of birth, marriage and death certificates but these can be arranged as an optional extra.[divider scroll_text=””]


Choose from our starter, intermediate and advanced packages or our special wedding/ anniversary packages.

[toggle_item title=”PRESENTATION” active=”true”]Our standard packages are delivered in a beautiful boxed presentation pack including a narrative report summarising each generation, an ancestor chart scroll and suggestions for further research, highlighting topics we believe you might find particularly interesting. Intermediate and Advanced Packages include a sheaf of original records, often in your ancestors’ own handwriting. Sometimes, it is even possible to locate family photographs. We like to think of each package as a personal dossier; an exciting treat to open and a lovely lasting keepsake.[/toggle_item]
[toggle_item title=”WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU TO BEGIN” active=”true”]We will ask for some preliminary information about the family before we begin research and it is helpful if you can tell us what you know, especially if your name is quite a common one.  Most people are able to provide information about their grandparents; often people know less (if anything) about their great-grandparents and any generations further back.  If you are not able to provide very much information, do not fear!  We are skilled in researching family histories, often based on very tiny details.[/toggle_item]

[toggle_item title=”PAYMENT AND TIMINGS” active=”true”]Payment must be made in advance before work can begin and can be made by Paypal, direct bank transfer or cheque.  Please note the prices outlined are based on the costs and time involved in researching a family tree in England & Wales.  Research in Scotland and Ireland, and overseas can be more time consuming.  We would be happy to provide an alternative quote; it often makes more sense to commission international research by the hour.  Please allow at least 4 weeks from the date of payment to delivery of the package; sometimes we may be able to agree a shorter deadline.[/toggle_item]

[toggle_item title=”FLEXIBILITY” active=”true”]We keep all research on file so that if you do want to come back for more, we can simply pick up where we left off.  That way, you can also ask friends and family for gift tokens towards further research!  If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, please get in touch.  We would be happy to tailor individual packages to suit your requirements. [/toggle_item][/toggle_box]
