"Through family stories I knew I had ancestors who had served in WWI and I asked Genealogy Investigations to find out more about them. Fran and Deb not only helped me learn more about my family history, but also found I had three other World War II veterans I never knew about. They were great to work with and I would highly recommend their services." David Powell, Wellington.
Your ancestors' stories are a valuable piece of history and a legacy you and your family deserve to cherish.
Everywhere your family went they will have left their footprints in all kinds of records. By re-tracing those steps we can help you to put together a family history that will reveal their stories for you.
Whether you are wanting to find just basic information about who your ancestors were, such as when and where they lived and died, or you want to know the details and stories of their lives, we can help. Researching your own family is rewarding, but it also can be time-consuming if you don't know where to find the information you need. We can provide you with a basic family tree and other information to help you get started on your own research, or we can provide you with a comprehensive family history, including some of the great (or not so great) things your ancestors have achieved.
We can start from any point in your family tree. Most people already know about their parents and grandparents, so, if you already know that information, we can start from there and work backwards.
We will conduct an initial three hours of dedicated research and provide you with a report which includes a basic family tree showing who your ancestors were. We will also provide you with other information that we find during our intensive three-hour search, including more detailed information, for example where they lived, what their occupations were, when they died, where they are buried and perhaps even photographs of them. The cost of this report is $225 (GST exclusive). If you want us to conduct further research and provide you with more comprehensive information and stories, the cost will be $75 per hour (GST exclusive). In the unlikely event that we incur any extra costs (for example needing to purchase a birth, marriage or death certificate) this will be charged to you at the cost price - but don't worry we won't do anything that will cost you more without contacting you and getting your agreement.
