As anyone who has tried to research their family tree will know, it is time consuming, stressful and very frustrating as you attempt to identify unknown ancestors and to match family lore with historical reality.

You will likely begin by learning all you can about your family from living relatives (both near and far) and from old family photographs and documents.

Once you’ve gone as far as you can with that, you’ll need to consider how best to proceed – seeking out (and learning how to use) the many and varied internet search sites and databases, many of which you will need to pay to access; creating and managing a plan to ensure you stay focussed on your chosen line(s) of research; analysing and organising a plethora of information into a cohesive family tree – not forgetting at every stage to check, check and check again!

And after that you still need to be able to set out and display this new found knowledge to share with the rest of your family.

To help you avoid the inconvenience and uncertainty, treeSEARCH can navigate a path through the forest to discover your tree.

Discover the Who, Where & When of Your Ancestry

Compass MaptreeSEARCH can help you discover who your ancestors were – where, when and how they lived, how the various branches of your family developed and when any significant events (eg. migrations) occurred. 

Someone famous (or infamous!) may pop up during the search or we may discover an unknown skeleton rattling around in a long-forgotten closet!

“Researching a family tree is much like detective work: following clues to confirm names, dates and places, generation by generation, accounting for and eliminating false leads as you go, until, hopefully, you are left with just the facts. It’s never straightforward, but it is ultimately very rewarding.”
