RESEARCH REPORTS
 

How you wish for your family tree to be researched is up to you. We can research the tree working back one generation at a time to include all ancestors, or we can work on particular lines as suggested by yourself, such as your paternal (surname) line, or maternal line.
 
Once the research has been carried out, the results will be e-mailed to you in the first instance, along with an invoice for the balance to be paid. Options on how the work may be progressed further will be explained, and on the basis of this report, you can then decide whether or not to commission any further research.
 
If you decide not to continue, a printed copy within a plastic display wallet will then be dispatched to your home address upon payment of the balance. If you wish to continue, the final printed report will be posted after the total work has been completed.
 
When tracing a family tree at the GROS and NAS, the final report will comprise of the following:
 

A RESEARCH REPORT containing every record that has been transcribed, with its relevant source number noted should you require to order a copy of the original at any stage in the future. Observations will be made along the way where appropriate, and an explanation of how any problems were addressed and overcome will be provided so that you can follow the exact research process as it happened.

Copies of an ANCESTRAL TREE from the primary individual and DESCENDANCY TREES from every one of the most distant ancestors found. These will be in a book format, displayed over several pages. The birth, marriage and death records will be displayed for each individual, and occupations where known.

An AHNENTAFEL REPORT explaining how your family progresses back one generation at a time, fully notated. 

KINSHIP REPORT outlining how the primary individual is related to everyone else in the tree.

COPIES of any records asked for.

 

Additonally, a GEDCOM file of your family tree will be e-mailed to you, as well as a PDF file showing the whole tree on one page. A GEDCOM file is a universal data format that will allow you to import and display the tree for yourself on most genealogical software packages such as Family Tree Maker 2006. 

For more detailed research, the report will be tailored to fit the job in hand, and regular e-mails will keep you appraised of progress.

FAMILY TREE CHARTS
 
 
Scotland's Greatest Story supplies PDF files of your family history charts, generated through Family Tree Maker, which can be printed off through specialist chart printers (see Links page). A GEDCOM file can also be used for the same purpose.
 
Whilst we do not supplied professionally designed charts ourselves, we can recommend the services of a designer called Christine Welch, who resides in Birmingham, England.
 
For 9.99 plus postage of 3.50, Christine can pull together a professionally designed family history chart using any images you may wish to supply, at either A3 size (colour) or A0 (black and white). Other sizes can also be catered for, though at a slightly increased cost.
 
Printed below is an example of one of Christine's excellent charts:
