genealogy gifts for xmas

Scottish Gift Overview:

Giving someone their heritage surely must be one of the most wonderful gifts of all. Imagine their delight and fascination in seeing their family traced back to when times were very different to now.

There are two factors to consider when deciding which type of gift is appropriate.

  • The degree to which the recipient would enjoy being "involved" in the creation process and
  • How much time you have between now and when it is to be presented.

family tree reports

This gift requires no participation from the recipient and will be personally researched by Jo using the original records held in repositories in Scotland. This ensures accuracy and completeness.

These reports can be anything from a simple, bound report plotting the recipient's ancestry back to a specific period to a weighty fully hand-bound personalised book, including family photos and anecdotes.

Price: From £100 to over £3,000 depending on your requirements regarding the depth/width of the research and the way it is presented.
Lead time: From 2 to 8 weeks depending on the size of the project.
