Family Discovery offers professional genealogical services. Our services include the full research and illustration of a family line. Family roots are carefully traced back in time using the U.K census records, birth, death and marriage certificates. Family Discovery has access to millions of census, military, electoral, newspaper, birth, death and marriage records. We can also research Scottish ancestry. We can also carry out research locally to Scarborough by searching the local archive centres, libraries and cemeteries.
It’s usually possible to trace a family line back to the late 1700’s, or even further!! We create beautiful scrolls which illustrate your family tree. The scroll is printed on super quality Epson 260gsm lustre photo paper. The scroll can have your family photographs and your family coat of arms included. The Bronze and Silver Family Discovery packages include all research into a family line, plus a beautiful scroll illustrating your family.
Dear Anne at Family Discovery, Thank you so much for the completed scrolls which arrived this morning. I must truly compliment you on all your work, your research, and the friendly, personal contact at all stages of the process and the diligent searching for answers to whatever questions came your way. You were always very sensitive to ensure that we were happy to hear of particular content, knowing that some of the findings highlighted areas of family history of which we were not aware. You were always very timely with your full and interesting emails, sharing with us the triumphs that you had along the way. Our requirement, the production of two family scrolls one for my family and one for the family of my wife were done with complete professionalism. It can not have been easy trawling through all the public records and the newspaper cuttings of over 100 years ago, but it was that personal contact, brought about by such notices of weddings, funerals (and court appearances) which gave important light and shade to the history of our families. It gave us closeness to them of which we were not previously aware. If you need anyone to give a personal recommendation to a prospective client I would be most pleased to do so. Your professional fee was well earned and most assuredly deserved, we feel truly honoured to have had the contact with you. Thank you so much, the scrolls will be framed and form a centrepiece in one of our rooms. The copies, which you sent to our two daughters, were similarly praised. We wish you much success with ever more Family Discoveries.
I hired Anne to take some ancestry research that I had done, validate it and add some extra information. She quickly found flaws and uncovered an unbelievable story that had been hidden for 4 generations in our family. I have hired Anne 3 more times and am about to use her for the fourth stream of our family. I found out that without genealogy research experience, it is easy to go down the wrong path. Also, because Anne knew where to look, she uncovered photographs of, and documents about, our family that no-one had seen. I can highly recommend Anne, she is very thorough, a true professional and her incredible passion for her work, makes the whole experience so much more exciting!
My Sister thinks her scroll is great!...so thank you very much! Indeed thank you so much for all the work you have done for us!
I can highly recommend Anne of Family Discovery. The pleasure she obtains from her work shines through and she combines this with total efficiency, dedication and professionalism. I had both sides of my family investigated and could not be more delighted with the beautifully presented family scroll and information packs.
Dear Anne at family discovery, Firstly may I say your service was second to none, I know I was a customer who couldn't make her mind up at times. my tree which I know was complicated, took shape so quickly, I was amazed. I never dreamt you could put my family in such a good light so to speak. The finished result is so spectacular and amazing, it’s just perfect. I looks better than I could have imagined, in fact I never imagined it could look so stunning. Thank you so much for all your hard work, it definitely is a work of art, and along with my research it’s just perfect.. once again thank you , I love it its awesome, I just can’t think of any other words. I will definitely be back for updating my tree in the near future, excellent job With thanks - Mrs Donella Agar
I had been wanting to trace my family history for some time, but had been put off by expensive quotes and impersonal services. Family Discovery is unique, in that Anne offers a tailor-made package geared to be exactly to your request, and she gives regular updates of progress along the way. Her passion for genealogy is clear, and she has a real flair for putting together the pieces of the jigsaw. Who would have thought so many secrets would be unlocked on our journey through the past! The whole process of working with Anne has been a pleasure, and the amount of work she put into my family tree has been overwhelming. I am absolutely thrilled with the information packs, and the family tree scroll is absolutely stunning. My parents are delighted with their surprise package, and I would wholeheartedly recommend tracing your family tree through Family Discovery to anyone who is interested in this fascinating journey.
I highly recommend Anne’s services. She is both experienced and knowledgeable. And she has been professional, efficient and prompt in all her work for me. Her charges are very reasonable, bordering on generous. We started our journey together of researching my family tree. She tracked down some birth/death certificates and both confirmed and corrected some details from my research. There were some fascinating – and poignant – findings. Most extraordinary of all was the discovery of a distant cousin just 45 miles away! I am now a proud owner of a beautiful (and enormous) family scroll replete with lovely old photographs. My cousin has now joined me in our quest and he is developing the tree further. Thank you Anne!
From tracking down obituaries, hiring a stonemason to right a headstone, to saving me a bit of money by ordering birth/death certificates, Anne takes Genealogy research to a personal level. There is no task so complicated that she is unwilling to help you unravel. When I shared that I was desperate to find any living Cousins, she became detective extraordinaire. Thank you Anne, for your dedication and compassion.
Thank you very much for your diligent research into our family histories. We were particularly impressed when you managed to uncover 100 years of the family within 24 hours! Your enthusiasm and dedication has been very evident and we hope that you will be able to help many other families gain insight into their past generations. We found the sad loss of two family members in the first world war was very poignant. We will treasure our family scroll embellished with the two family coats of arms We are very grateful for your first class assistance.
I am thrilled to bits. I should have done this years ago. Professional and thorough research. I have no hesitation in recommending Family Discovery.
I would just like to tell you how impresses and pleased my wife and I are with the Family History research and the pictorially illustrated family scroll which you prepared. The overall product is impressive, both visually and factually. When approaching a professional Genealogist for the first time, I was reassured by your free initial research from which you were able to gauge accurately how far back in the generations you would be able to go with any certainty and stick to your estimate of costs. Altogether, a piece of very professional and painstaking work. I would gladly recommend you to others who wished to find out more about their ancestors.
