Platinum Family History Research Package Print

What to expect:

This is our most comprehensive research package for those who wish to extend the research to include every branch of their family tree. Depending on available data we will chart your family history as far back and as widely as we can. Our record so far has been to discover an individual born in about 1130AD! However, not every family will have documentation as far-reaching as this.

 

 

(Picture shows example of a Platinum Research Package -- your Family History will be unique!)

  • Presentation folder
  • 18 hours of in-depth research work
  • 16 hours of documentation and presentation work

We were absolutely delighted with our Family History, it was the highlight of our family reunion last weekend. Thank you for providing a great source of interest and joy. -- W.B. (Bodmin, Cornwall)
 
Parish Records
Many Parish Records have been put onto microfilm and can be viewed at your local County Record Office. You can expect to find entries from the Parish Church Register as well as Poor Law records, surveys, maps and wills. It is a good idea to phone ahead incase you need to book a place and go with a clear idea of what or who you are looking for rather than getting bogged down in swathes of records with no real focus.
