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