Just a Family Tree…
Just a Family Tree...
We are experiencing some minor delays when trying to acquire documents, however they are currently not as pronounced as they were - if in any doubt contact us before you order.
A no frills starter family tree perfect for those with a small budget. Because family trees can be very costly to research and can take years to discover, this small beginner's tree provides a foundation on which a large tree can be built.
It is possible to add further research to this tree later on if the genealogy bug grabs you or the gift recipient!
What you should know:
- This tree is researched for the gift recipient (or yourself) by a professional genealogist.
- It researches back to your/the gift recipient's eight great grandparents.
- Original first-hand records are consulted (not indexes or other family trees). All ancestors are verified to the correct standards.*
- You are not charged extra for us to view these original records (some genealogists will charge you extra).
- After research has finished, you will receive an A3 chart showing the names and dates of the gift recipient's (or your) ancestors (see image above).
- You will receive list of sources checked to assist you with future research (click illustration).
(*We do not verify the information you supply above).
Recording Surname Variations
We will record and display an ancestor's surname exactly how it appears on their birth record according to genealogical standard practice. This may be very different from the current spelling due to surname variations!
You may find that the tree will show many variations of the surname. This is not incorrect - remember there is no 'correct' version of a surname!
Who can use this service?

What's not included:
- Background information about the gift recipient's (your) ancestors.
