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.

What My Customers Say

“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. It was beautifully documented with a plan of our family tree and we were completely satisfied with all her work.”
