Historical research can be a time consuming task and it is surprising what is available.
Sometimes it can be sensible to let professionals comb through the archives on your behalf. Often they have access to additional reference sources not readily accessible to non-professional researchers, they know the questions to ask and the places to look.
Why might your family have appeared? Usually people look for a Mention in Despatches or the announcement of a medal, often during WWl or WWll, however surprises can include finding changes of name and long forgotten bankruptcies.
We are now pleased to be able to offer a range of research services:
- The Archive Query Service
- The Research Report Service (for WWl military gazettings)
The Archive Query Service is for those needing some support to use the online archive. We will be pleased to carry out searches on your behalf.
The cost is £30 including Vat with a free copy of the Gazette in question,best of all, if we find nothing then you pay nothing.
Please download the Archive Query Form to commission the research. We regret that we are unable to answer emailed archive queries.
The Research Report Service builds on the Gazette entry
and draws on additional sources to build a vivd picture of the subject, their war service, where they served, what they did and the conditions in which they operated. This is a fantastic service that we are proud to offer. We guarantee that that the review will draw on more than 12 independent and expert sources.
The cost is £60 including Vat for a project like this example for Stoker Norris.
