Once upon a family tree

One Name Descent Packages

One name descent takes the name of one person – for example, the root person’s mother’s surname or the root person’s father’s surname – and traces that name back through the generations. You can pick from four generations back from the root person, (their great grandparents’ generation), five generations back (their great great grandparent’s generation), or as far back as possible – typically six-eight generations.


Each package is priced separately, and takes an increasing amount of estimated time to complete.

Any travel expenses within a 20-mile radius of my home are absorbed into package costs. Research further afield will incur extra travel costs, but these will be discussed with you before journeys are undertaken.


Your package will contain a printed report detailing all the family members I have identified, and that same report in electronic PDF format. You will also receive a family tree diagram, and any (up to three) civil event certificates that have been purchased as part of the research.


Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
