Jane. Thank you so much for your kindness in sending the updated tree and I look forward to receiving the certificates. Your help with my family history is very much appreciated. It was such a relief to finally discover my Mothers past and her family and what a surprise to find I had two uncles I never knew existed.

Thank you so much.

Just a quick note to say the documents arrived safely and we are absolutely delighted, my mum especially, she has not stopped going over them trying to piece it all together to match her memories!!

We would like to ask if you could continue your hard work on my dad's side.

Look forward to hearing from you and thanks again

This is wonderful and I am so grateful for all the research you are carrying out - it is fascinating for me to explore so much about my past ancestors.

Received the newspaper cuttings today. Many, many thanks. I am very pleased with them, as is my Mother.

P O'Connor


Fantastic! Thanks for the update Jane... my Father-in-law will be 'over the moon'. I'm well impressed and I'll definitely be recommending you to my family and friends.

Little more than a month ago I only knew the names of one grandparent and very few relatives. I found Jane on the Internet, and asked her if she could identify my ancestors and their descendants. Now, I have the details of all my grandparents and great-grandparents, as well as over 100 relatives on both sides of the family, some going back to the 16th century! I have also made contact with my late mother's half sister, who lives in Australia. This is due to Jane's excellent research.

Jane is quick, efficient, responsive and sympathetic. She provides great value for money, and does so in such a friendly way that she shares my excitement in unearthing my ancestors and relatives. I would recommend her to anyone.

I just wanted to thank you so much for the presentation pack which arrived here on Christmas Eve.

It is so very nice to have the hard copy to look at. We were so interested in all the details of my great Uncle George and his World War 1 war record and untimely death - so much information... absolutely fascinating.

Arriving as it did just before Christmas gave me an idea of the perfect present for my husband next year!

Alexis


Once again thank you Jane... the information that you have found for us has been very enlightening and emotional for the boys, they all wanted to know more and now they do. The wondering is over.

Robyn H


Received my pack this morning :-) Thank you very much for all the time and effort you put into it. Well presented and the photos you managed to get are amazing. Keep up all the hard work!

Claire


I just wanted to say many thanks for the family tree - my mum was delighted. Thank you for all your work throughout the year.

Sara


I just can't believe how much information you have found and how far it goes back. I have only just started and scratched the surface compared with you.

Christine B


I just wanted to thank you for Trevor's family history. He was thrilled and very surprised but he loved it, just seeing it all written down and finding out what all the 'ancestors' were and what they did.

Cherry


Hello Jane, I just spoke to my Dad and I wanted to let you know that he was absolutely thrilled with the package! In his words, he was 'over the moon' and it has now inspired him to take some time to visit the war memorials where some of his family is buried and other places where they lived.

Thanks again, it made a wonderful birthday present.

Lucy


Many thanks for these and for doing the research for us, I think you've done an amazing job. I'm sure mum will be thrilled with it when we present it to her on Saturday.

We're now thinking about researching dad's side of the family! Thanks again!

Rebecca


I received the pack this morning and wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it. I need to sit and read through it all again as there is so much information to take in. I really like the information on the jobs people had; it provides nice background detail and some idea of what their lives were like.

Thank you for enclosing the army papers for my mum's natural father. We have never had any information about him so simple details like eye and hair colour are particularly useful and I think my mum will be really pleased with these little details.

I think this is going to be a really popular gift and I am so pleased that I made that initial contact with you to see what was possible. I must admit, I did not expect to get so much.

Thank you so much for doing this, I am absolutely delighted!

This may not be the last you hear from me as I am now wondering about doing my father's family.

Anyway, thanks again, off to have another perusal!

Carole


Thanks very much Jane - it's great to see my tree unfolding. I now find myself constantly trying to imagine what life must have been like for my ancestors over 150 years ago.

Paul M


First thing I'd like to say is Wow... The amount of information you have gathered in one month, is absolutely amazing going back to the end of the 18th c. I truly am amazed.

Thank you very much for the work so far and I'm more excited than ever to see the end result.

Dan


My pack has arrived safely, thanks a million! I was celebrating my 82nd birthday a day late today and the postman brought me the best present ever, couldn't have been better timing, I am SO excited.

My daughter and I have been pouring over it most of the afternoon, it is fascinating.

Thank you again for all the work you have put into this, it has given me such pleasure to identify and empathise with these hardworking brave people of yesteryear. Both my daughter and I felt very close to them today.

Jo L


I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for the ancestry pack - I got to the UK over the weekend and picked up the pack for the first time and had a good read. I have now passed it over to mum for her birthday and she loved it.

Nick P


Thank you so much again; I was completely delighted by the attention to detail and the presentation - thank you so much! I will contact you in the New Year for my mum's family tree.
