We were impressed with the careful research and unique approach Brian and English Roots used to produce our family history.   More than a list of names and dates,  he brought our ancestors to life by including stories and photos. Everyone was thrilled with the book he presented at our family reunion. We highly recommend Brian to anyone interested in tracing their family roots.

Thank you very much for all the research you have done. We and all the recipients are very pleased with all the information and impressed by the way that it is presented. The historical detail brings it all alive and changes it from a family record to a memorable experience.

Ros Lucas, Lincoln


Excellent end product and great value for money. This has produced a fantastic 80th birthday present for Mum and a valuable historical document for the family. Brian goes that extra mile to be sure that he is giving the customer what he wants.

I'd say you did a fantastic job researching my Owen family.  I am very
pleased!

Job well done.

Nancy Cox, Anderson, Indiana, USA


I was more than satisfied with the service provided, as English Roots kept in contact advising of the progress being made with my request. They also went out of their way to find military records and living family contacts. As I live in Australia I very much appreciated the history of the towns and of the people’s way of life during the period researched.

I would certainly recommend English Roots to anyone researching their Family History, as the information obtained by them has been very thorough and more than I had expected to receive. 

Thank you for your friendly e-mails and lookforward to future communications in regard to other family ancestors.

Janet Innes, Cairns, Australia


I wanted to drop you a line of thanks for a fabulously enjoyable course. I now feel I have the ability and knowledge to take my research a stage further, hopefully several stages further using your e-mail printouts and the information gained from your superb teaching.

Lisa Darnell, WEA course member


May I say how very impressed we are by the service you offer. My wife and I will be asking you again to do some family research for us.

Peter Clark, Kings Lynn, Norfolk


When I first contacted English Roots I had been searching unsuccessfully for my mother for over 20 years. The Salvation Army and two investigators, one in Australia and one in Scotland, were unable to find her.

However English Roots looked at the few facts I had managed to gather over the years and with a good deal of lateral thinking were successful in finding her and other family members within a short space of time. 

At all times English Roots were mindful of not incurring unnecessary expense and undertook the assignment in a professional and thorough manner. My sister and I will be eternally grateful for a job well done. Thank you.

Most definitely will recommend English Roots to others because of the way you tackled our problem and your very helpful approach. The rate per hour was very reasonable.

Kathleen Brown, Alford, Lincolnshire


Very friendly, helpful, professional service. The family history book was very thoroughly researched and beautifully presented with lovely photographs.

Nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend English Roots.

Julie Gleeson


A huge thank you - we will be doing another branch of the family with English Roots in the next few months. The family history has been of so much interest to everyone in the family. I liked the fact that the social history was included. It brought the whole thing to life on a really personal level.

The work was excellent - very quick, and very good value for money.

Julie Foster, Managing Director, Potions & Possibilities


Dad was so happy and surprised with this gift (family history book). I would recommend this very good and friendly service.

Helen Tonks


If you are unsure how to get started on your family tree and need assistance, or someone to do it for you, English Roots would be a good point to start. The trainer is patient and will go over things if you are not sure. Handouts were very informative. 

Brenda Peacock (English Roots student)


Many thanks for a very well organised and interesting course. I know I will find the information most useful in my future research and I place considerable value on your excellent printed notes.

I am very pleased with my family history book. It brings my family history to life and is both professional and well-presented.
