As local, social and family historians, our work at FWL is diverse. One day, we could be investigating a house history in Lincolnshire and the next day, a tracing case in Gambia …. One minute locating ancestors in Ireland and later the same day, researching military records. No two days are the same and no two projects are the same. Some clients want to grow tall, thin trees, focussing on the lineage of one surname within the family. Others want to go ‘as far back as possible‘ using the four surnames of someone’s grandparents – I would not have had much enthusiasm for that myself with Day, Evans, Maunder and Oats!
Trees come in all different shapes and sizes. Some are tall and thin whilst other have a large number of branches growing from the trunk, some at a very low height from the ground.
Everyone’s family history is unique, as are their aims in their research. Far and wide? Tall and thin? How does your tree look at the moment? What would you like it to look like? [When was the last time you looked at it? …. Watered it?]
Anyone can research their family history if they want to, so why would you want to employ the services of a professional genealogist? Possibly when your tree stops growing no matter how much you water it? Maybe when you find that your tree has grown in directions you don’t feel confident climbing in?
We have special powers which have been honed for many decades. We can find the unfindable, crack the uncrackable and go where other tree surgeons have never gone before. Free quotation ….. just tell us how high you’d like your tree to grow and what seeds you have to help us on our way!
