Research Your Family History

Family Scrapbook provides a comprehensive range of services to help showcase and preserve your family history for future generations.

Our research starts from whatever known family history information you can provide; grandparents, great grandparents, great-great grandparents, birth, marriage & death certificates, census returns etc.


Fixed Price Packages Available

Family Scrapbook offer two fixed priced packages for standard research from the 1911 Census Return (the latest return released for public viewing) to 1837 when civil registrations commenced. The advantage of purchasing a fixed priced package means you know in advance exactly how much your research will cost.


Document & Location Photography

Family history comes to life when you can see copies of documents or pictures of places where ancestors once lived; where they were baptised, married, or buried, or where a war memorial exists commemorating the life of an ancestor.

If you do not have the time to visit an area, or geographically live too far away Family Scrapbook will travel to any location in Essex where you would like photographs to be taken.


Free estimates are available on request, with advice given on the best way forward, and an assessment as to whether it’s possible to complete a project within a specified timescale.
