Family Research

I offer an initial one-hour FREE consultation where we discuss your requirements and I undertake some preliminary work. From this I provide an itemised quote and scope of work. Once we have both agreed, research begins.

Interviewing Services

Have you ever wished that someone in your family had taken the time to create and leave behind a life story or a journal which would have shared some insights into his or her life?

Do you want to leave your story to future generations? Have you got a relative (or two!) who you would love to sit down with and hear the stories of their life but just don’t have the time to listen and document the important stuff (and the not so important stuff too!). Branches of Time will interview you or your family member and provide a written report.

We can then extend this report with photographs, newspaper articles and historical events to create a beautiful legacy for future generations.

Creating and Collating Family Questionnaires

Are you hosting a family reunion or just want to have all those long-lost cousins fill in the blanks of their branches? Branches of Time can create a questionnaire that is appropriate for your family circumstances, distribute to your family and then handle the collation of the project. From these questionnaires we can provide a bound document either in question and answer raw material format, or write up each person’s story. What a fascinating document to hand down to future generations!

One Surname – Four Generation Report

The four generation surname report is one of the most cost effective ways of gathering information on a branch you want to concentrate on. In this report, I once again offer an initial one-hour FREE consultation where I am able to assess your project. From this, research begins. After I have completed my work, I provide a bound comprehensive report which includes a family tree chart, details of the individuals (addresses and occupations where known), name of spouse and date of marriage, names of children (all sources of information and reference numbers for the record indexes are included). This also include a maximum of 5 certificates.

I’m able to write biographies of notable ancestors and/or local, national and international historical stories your ancestors would have lived through. Photographs and media articles to round out your family stories will generally be included.  These can be provided as a stand-alone item or as an add-on to a family history report I’m compiling for you.  They also make great gifts or can be printed to be purchased at family reunions.

Family Reunion Planning and Management

I co-ordinate the needs of your family reunion. You tell me how much input you need and I will work around your requirements. I can also manage social media around your event and ongoing support.
