Welcome to Family Tree Service.
I am a professional genealogy researcher who started out, like most, as an enthusiastic researcher of my own family. I began to be interested in my UK ancestry in about 2000. Since then my passion has grown, and with the advent of genealogical information on the internet, so too has my tree. Covering English genealogy, Scottish genealogy and Welsh genealogy, it has been fascinating research. Over the years I started to research the family trees of several friends (focusing majorly on Yorkshire and Lancashire genealogy) and after meeting my wife, who has a fascinating and complex family history, including Jewish genealogy, I became obsessed!
In response I set up Family Tree Service and have been operating since 2007. To date I have completed hundreds of trees, some just a few generations, others ten, fifteen or even twenty, with excellent results and very positive feedback.
Family Tree Service was set up with three main aims.
- To allow anyone to research their family history, no matter how big or small.
- To cater for all budgets.
- To use the information gathered (not including living relatives) to help the genealogical community at large.
My background was initially in Human Ecology but has seen me move in publishing, working in a research capacity before managing a Technology Support team. This has given me great research skills, a passion for problem solving and a drive to produce quality, accurate work.
Family Tree Service will give you a very friendly, approachable and professional offering in the UK genealogy research field that you find to be extremely good value for money. I promise, you won't regret it.
We offer a friendly, genuine genealogy service that is dedicated to accuracy and promises to deliver a standard three generation family tree within a two month period.
We will research any family tree whose ancestry is held within the UK. Using our contacts we will try to trace ancestry outside the UK also, although this is not guaranteed and outside of the package ordered. This includes Irish research.
We cannot always guarantee 100% return on the research due to missing records and poor documentation availability.
If you would like specific information included in the research, let me know and we will do our best to include it. For example, if you have family stories that you would like included, please do let me know.
The aim of the research is to provide a family tree. Life stories of family members are not possible sadly. Specific information can be requested and we will do our best to accomodate such requests, however, this is in addition to the packages.
If you consent, our aim is to publish all genealogy information in a sensitive fashion, withholding all details of living relations, to help provide the ancestry community with as much accurate information as possible.
