"Every family's story is unique and a gift to the generations to come."

Hi, my name's Tony Wait, and I am a professional genealogist and family historian.

Many genealogists will just give you a list of names and dates, but I believe that it is also important to find out the facts behind the names: where they lived, what they did for a living, what happened to them, and also the context of what was happening in the world at that time that may have affected them. Through census returns, and other archived records, I can bring this past alive again, and give your ancestors a voice.

What I do

  • Working to your requirements, I will create a bespoke package which may include:
  • Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates (£9.25 each)
  • Copies of Census Returns
  • Copies of records from the 1939 Register
  • Military Records (where applicable)
  • Parish records
  • Probate records (wills)
  • Newspaper extracts
  • Emigration details (including the name of the ship)
  • A copy of of your family history chart
  • A printed history of your surname

What You Do Next - the First Steps To Discovering Your Family's Past...

Step One:  Decide on your budget, and which ancestral line you would like me to research (maternal or paternal)

Step Two: Gather together some details about the person you would like to start with, such as:

  • Name
  • Birth Date
  • Parents' Names (if known)
  • Last Known Address (if known)      

Step Three: Contact me using the form on the Contact Page, e-mail me at tonywait@tonywaitgenealogist.com, or call me on 07858795768.

My working rate is £20 per hour plus expenses (such as birth certificates etc). When you contact me with what you want, I will first provide you with a non-obligatory quote, and I will communicate with you before any additional charges are added, if applicable.
