Discretion and professionalism
"I was really surprised at how tearful I felt when I found my mother's birth certificate. Thank you for being so sympathetic and discreet. The whole thing has been really therapeutic and I feel much more in tune with my past now."? -- Mrs W. (Warwickshire)

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.

Name Research and Coat of Arms
Finding out about your surname can provide some surprising insights into your distant ancestors, perhaps your name refers to a trade like Taylor or Baker, or maybe there is some foreign blood in your line.
Some families will also have heraldic heritage, a Coat of Arms used in battle or a Crest to identify aristocratic connections. Family Detective can research this information for you, see our Research Packages section.
