Richard found documents I could never have dreamed of finding…

ROSIE – Derbshire, UK

“I have recently used Richard’s amazing service to unblock a wall that has been in our family tree for years! Wow, Richard found documents I could never have dreamed of finding, gave me a detailed report, photographs and some further research options for me to follow. Richard certainly goes the extra mile and I would certainly recommend him to anyone.”

Rosie – UK

“I had the pleasure of using Richard’s services in the past few months to help with a family tree project I had been working on. As soon as we agreed the terms, he started looking into it and kept our communication flawless. He provided me with consistent updates without any prompting, and always enquired about any additional incurring costs before going ahead with ordering documents, all while offering a very clear and realistic idea of what could be achieved in the time we agreed on. Although I initially asked for help with a brick wall, he exceeded my expectations and requests and provided me with a beautifully written, detailed and cohesive report that summarised all of his work. All of the evidence was cited and backed in well organised individual folders.

His passion for his work is very transparent and I’ve often found myself bombarding this man with questions that he always took the time and patience to reply to. All in all it was a very enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking to research their family tree or tracing their past history.

Thank you Richard!”

“WOW! Fast, professional, detailed, excellent at communicating with updates, affordable!
I had struggled with a line of my genealogy for two years with nothing but frustration. He solved it with original source documents (which he sent to me), in just a few hours! So impressed!”

I asked Richard to help me with my family tree. I had a little bit of information and after making contact with him we established what I wanted and also what was reasonable within the budget I had. I can honestly say I am amazed by the amount of information I received and now my husband is looking to find out more about his relatives.

The service I received really was five stars and given my experience I would not hesitate to recommend him! I will go back to him when I am looking to go into a particular family member more or to go further back!”

Duncan – South Africa

“I have recently used Richard’s family history services again to research my paternal grandmother. He is an amazing man, his wealth of knowledge is incredible and where to look, delving into the archives is beyond belief. Richard goes above and beyond to try to resolve an ancestry query. I would most certainly recommend him, every time.”

Sue – UK

“So pleased we asked Richard to help solve a family mystery! The only trouble is we found so much more and even more exciting rabbit holes to follow! The information researched and found for us was fascinating. I’m sure we will be back for more!”
