Find out about your ancestors and family tree

We passionately believe that family history is not just about dates and places but about bringing your ancestors to life.

Our friendly and professional researchers love sharing their expertise with you to trace your family back in time and produce a fascinating report about the lives of your ancestors.

Research Through People is based in the United Kingdom and can help you research your ancestors in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. We can also help those living abroad who have British ancestors.

An area we specialise in is migration


We can help British people with ancestors or relatives who migrated from one part of the country to another or who emigrated from Great Britain. We can also help those living abroad who have British ancestors. We have associates in various countries in America, Australasia and Europe who can carry out research on the ground where it is necessary.
