Services

I offer a range of professional services to help reveal your family story, depending on your requirements. These include:

Tracing your family tree using birth, marriage and death records, as well as censuses, wills, and other records.

Researching the military history of an ancestor who served with the Armed Forces

Helping you take a family DNA test and interpreting the results

Researching the history of your home using a wide range of records, from newspapers and electoral rolls, to land tax records and historical maps

I charge £30 per hour for research. Any necessary documents that need to be ordered will be agreed with you and charged at cost only.

Our Ancestry Reveal experience can be booked at the end of your research to present the research results to you and other family members using online tools such as zoom. This costs £65 for an hour and includes a slide presentation in addition to the written report of my research. It’s an ideal way to involve all the family in the excitement of discovering your family stories.

As a rule of thumb, I normally recommend a minimum of four hours to research a line of a family tree.

Please do get in touch by emailing matthewjball@btinternet.com to discuss your personal requirements and a free consultation.
