We offer a Devon-based professional genealogical service helping you discover your English ancestors.


We can usually trace most English family trees to at least as far back as 1837, and often much earlier. We specialise in tracing Devon ancestry.


Choose from an hourly research service - which can be specially tailored to your needs, or if you prefer fixed price research, opt for one of our family tree packages.  


We can carry out specialist research online in the office, go out on location, or visit the Devon archives  - whatever suits your particular requirements.


We also offer a high quality location photography service within the county of Devon.  See some of our Devon photos on Flickr and Instagram.


Please note that we do not usually travel outside the county, nor do we carry out research on living people.


If you've already got some information on your family tree, see our introductory analysis service - this is an excellent starting point for anyone wanting help to assess the potential for further research on their family lines - we examine what you've already got for you, and provide a full report with recommendations.

Alternatively, download our free PDF family tree starter pack which includes a blank family tree chart.  Fill it in as best you can and tell us what you already know about your family, before we start work.


Either way, we can help you discover your ancestors!


We welcome enquiries from the USA (especially California, Florida, Texas, Utah and the New England states), Canada (especially Newfoundland and Ontario), South Africa, Australia and New Zealand - the prime destinations of many Devon emigrants over the centuries.


We pride ourselves in providing the expertise to achieve exceptional results.  It's important to us that we offer the highest quality service, and that our clients are more than satisfied; we don't cut corners, because we only want the best for our clients.


We're also very friendly, so give us a call to find out more - we offer a free 30 minute initial consultation, so get in touch!


Contact us so that we can help you find your English ancestors.
