Welcome to Ancestors Direct

 indenture 1
We can help you find your ancestors anywhere in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States of America and in many other countries. 
Do you watch 'Who Do You Think You Are' and wish you could have a go at finding out about your family past? Do you have photographs of your relatives but know little about them?  If you want to find answers to these questions then Ancestors Direct can help.  

We are passionate about helping you find your ancestors and we would love to tell your family story.  If you want us to we offer a free consultation by telephone or through Skype or we can just do everything by email.  If you can't find what you want on the website then please get in touch with us through our contacts page. We really want to ensure we get our service to you exactly as you need it.  We can do all of the preliminary research through email if you prefer.  The choice is yours.  If you live outside the UK we will do all of your research by email and if you want we can chat by Skype to make sure we give you the best service possible.

Having a record of your family history makes a wonderful gift and is a legacy which can be handed down through the generations.  A sample report and pedigree chart can be found on our 'genealogical packages' page.
