Digging for ancestors can be addictive! It may lead to information that will surprise or shock you or disprove old family stories. Once you start digging, you never know what you may find.
While this may delight you to find some colourful characters in your tree, care should be taken when speaking with other members of the family, especially the older generation. Many family secrets were carefully guarded so blurting out to your ageing, elderly maiden aunt that you know she had a secret child may not be the wisest thing to do!
If you choose to start rummaging through your family closet, do so with an open mind and be prepared for some skeletons to pop out!
We offer various options to help you grow your Family Tree.
During the cultivation of your tree, we will keep in touch with you as necessary to ask questions and gather more information from you. Providing us with as much information as you can will help to bring you results faster and with greater accuracy.
Family Tree growing can be a slow process and there are no guarantees that the information can be found or is accessible - it all depends on the information that is available to us. The time to grow your tree will vary depending on many different factors including but not limited to: basic information given, country and availability of records. Research can take between 3-4 months to complete.
After you send us the information you already have by filling in the Family Information Sheet (found under the Getting Started page) we'll contact you to discuss the best package to fit your options and budget.
By telling us what information you have, we won’t waste time discovering things you already know. We’re most interested in dates and places of ancestors’ births, marriages and deaths. Even just approximate information can help, though we love to see original documents when you have them.
Start growing your tree by planting a seed! Give us some basic information about your family and we will start growing your Family Tree. You will then have the option to continue on and grow a full tree or just a few branches.
