Family Tree Packages

I offer family tree packages to suit your budget. These can be from basic family tree reports with transcribed records to more comprehensive illustrative reports. They can include mini biographies, local history or observations that can shed light on your ancestors’ lives.

The family tree packages make an ideal gift for the one you love.

Retrieve A Document From An Archive

If you live abroad and want primary sources, I can obtain available copies of documents from local Scottish archive centres (travel costs will be incurred). Documents may include family papers, electoral registers, school records, court records or sasines to name a few.

Location Photography

I can take video or digital photographs of gravestones, churches and buildings in the places where your ancestors lived in Kinross-shire, Perthshire, Fife, Edinburgh or the Lothians (travel costs will be incurred).

Let me research your ancestral village and take photos or videos to show your family at a virtual family reunion.

What My Customers Say

It was beautifully documented with a family tree

“I would like to recommend Sarah Smith if you are looking for someone to do a Family History for you. She recently did our family tree and did an excellent job. It was very detailed and went back many generations. We were completely satisfied with all her work.”
