Geoff Swinfield Genealogical Services will offer an efficient, economical and
informative service for those who wish to learn more about their family's history. Our
aim and pledge is to conduct in-depth research to discover who your ancestors were,
where they lived, what they did and when and where they were born, married and
perhaps died or were buried.
- Taking your knowledge of who your recent ancestors were and any information
which you can obtain from your relatives, GSGS will use national and local sources,
indexes and documentation to extend our knowledge of the history of your family.
- The results of this extensive research will be presented to you in a detailed Research
Report. This will explain the research process and describe the records searched. It
will contain the results of all the searches conducted for you, whether positive or
negative, and copies of the records which have been obtained. Our current knowledge
of your family will be illustrated by a pedigree chart or family tree which incorporates
the original information known to you and the new relationships found. Suggestions
for further research will be made.
- On receipt of the Research Report, you can decide whether you wish to proceed to a
subsequent stage of investigation on this family. Alternatively, you may wish to learn
more about one of the other surnames found in your ancestry. If so, GSGS will be
pleased to help you to learn more about that family too.
The main sources used in the investigations for those who lived in England, Wales
and Scotland will be the records of: -
The information revealed about your ancestors in these sources may be supplemented
by searches in: -
and a variety of other records where relevant to the research. Where possible, copies
of the material which documents the lives of your ancestors will be made.
