World War One Research
Do you have a particular ancestor who served in the military that you have always wanted to know a little more about? Now that the centenary commemorations of the First World War have passed, you may have thought about your own family members who took part in the conflict. If you would like to find out more about them, do contact us to discuss what you would like researched.
We have a great deal of experience in First World War History, from building and maintaining three war memorial/home front web sites to taking groups around the Battlefield sites in France and Belgium.
Mike Royden has also recently had published a book on The Home Front During the First World War, sections of which are available for download on this site. There are numerous biographies of soldiers on the war memorial websites, plus articles in the left hand column to give an idea of expertise and what could be discovered.
We use a range of sources to produce a soldier's story, which will include copies of documents, maps and photographs where relevant.
Do contact us with any information you have about your ancestor, such as his regiment, his service number and any other personal details.
Discover your Roots and AncestryIf you have always wanted to find out more about your ancestry and to bring to life your own personal 'Who Do You Think You Are?' record, we offer a professional, comprehensive and friendly service.
For example, you may wish to have a single, one-name family line traced, or two or more of your grandparents lines researched - whatever your requirements, we aim to provide you with a record to treasure as a family heirloom.
In each case you will receive a file with detailed reports, a family tree, ancestral charts and birth and marriage certificates. You will also receive on disk all of the research data, and a digital copy of your tree that can be uploaded to most of the popular family tree packages, so you can preserve your files on your own home computer.
If your ancestors are from near to our base in the Merseyside / West Cheshire area, we can also offer guided tours where you can visit the former homes, sites and locations frequented by your family members.
