Family History Help

Welcome to Family History Help

We have been finding ancestors since 1998 and in that time discovered the stories and life events of thousands of people.  We have unlimited access to millions of online UK and overseas records from dozens of different resources.  As a member of the Society of Genealogists, we benefit from having access to further records that may not be found elsewhere.

• Affording annual subscription to the top 3 genealogy Internet search sites (costing over £580 p.a.) is challenging in today's economic climate. Pay-per-view sites often prove uneconomical when you are faced with many 'possible' search results - bringing you a disappointing hit & miss experience.  It’s very easy to just give up the search and put it down to a bad idea. 

• We won’t give up helping you to find your family – we just look at it in a different way.  With our experience and resources we can acquaint you with your ancestors more effectively, efficiently and quickly by following their footprints in life.

• Have you ever overpaid for a Birth, Marriage or Death Certificate only to find it isn't your ancestor after all?  We won’t overcharge you for certificates – you pay the cost price plus P&P. See our FAQ section for further details.

• Maybe you simply don’t have the time to start searching, or maybe you keep putting it off but would really like to know more about your family roots.

We will lay the foundations for your family tree by researching at least 4 generations of your family - often more.  At the end of the project we will recommend specific further research so you can grow the family tree at your own pace.

You may have hit a ‘brick wall’ and need some help breaking it down.  Maybe you have a specific project we can help with?

If you have already completed your family tree but you still have some little niggles that it may not be quite right – we can re-trace and verify your information or suggest further resources.
