at my own pace
Ben navigated me safely along an emotional journey of discovery. He allowed me to take things step by step at my own pace, as I came to terms with each piece of information as it surfaced and always let me lead. Ben marries his passion for family history with a respect and care for the emotional and psychological welfare of every person he accompanies on such a journey.
My dad died years ago but I knew I had four half-siblings from his two other relationships – none of whom, as far as I knew, had any idea that I even existed! Very quickly Ben discovered their names and contact details and I wrote to them. We spoke a few times on the phone, exchanged e-mails and letters – fabulous, enlightening yet heart-breaking letters. I had got what I needed, which was answers, and a certain sense of closure. I am now at peace with my own past.
My long-troubled relationship with my mum has improved and all this would not have been possible without Ben guiding and supporting me on this journey.
recommend with confidence
Very little was known about him because I was very young when unfortunately he passed away, so I took up your next option of the 'Connection Package' and have just received the truly amazing folder containing my father's family line dating from 1773.
There is so much information contained in this folder that I can now add to it with my family line right up to the present day. A total of 244 years of valuable and interesting family history that can now be handed down to the next generations that follow in my “Footsteps” (a very fitting name for your company, I must say!).
I can with confidence recommend your services to anyone wishing to use them and I wish you every success with your business in the future.
