  2. ...2. Storybooks...Pedigree charts, showing your direct ancestors

  3. BulletA detailed overview of the lives of your ancestors - where they lived, who the married, what they did for a living, etc.

The whole is printed and presented in a neat springback folder, embossed with gold lettering on the front.  It can be many pages long, depending on the chosen package.  The folders come in red, green, blue, purple, black or a leather-finish brown, and can be opened up for additional research to be added at a later date.

Contents of the Storybook


A stylish pull-out family tree, showing your direct ancestors, is included at the front of your Storybook to help get you started!

Your Family History Report

A full and thorough narrative report telling the story of your ancestors.  (This will already have been researched and written by Ancestry by Heir Line as part of a research package or hourly commission.)


An introduction to your report, which outlines all the notable events that happened in your ancestors’ lives.


Paternal and/or maternal family trees which show the names of your direct relations.


A detailed explanation of who your direct and indirect ancestors were, including information about living relations.


Bite-size family tree charts, broken down into easy-to-digest family groups.


What your ancestors did for a living will be included within the report.  You will also receive an alphabetical list of all the job titles in your family history and the years in which your ancestors were working.


Exact postal addresses of your ancestors (if these have been recorded) will be included within your Storybook.


A detailed explanation showing how the recipient of the book is related to everybody in their family tree.


An index of all the people in your research, including reference numbers so that they can be followed through the statistical report.


An alphabetical index of the places where your ancestors and relatives were born, baptised, married, lived, worked, died and were buried.  Also included are the churches where baptisms, marriages and burials took place (providing these records are available to us).


A chronological index of the dates of notable events that occurred in your family history.


We will print up to ten family photographs and include captions underneath explaining who is in each picture.  If you do not have access to any photographs then we will aim to provide images of the streets, buildings or towns where your ancestors lived.

Optional Extra:

Transcriptions of Wills

If your ancestors were wealthy, they may have written a Last Will and Testament.  These are often fascinating documents, revealing all sorts of information about their lives, their closest relatives, and, of course, their most treasured possessions.  Please note: copies of wills incur small additional charges.

Optional Extra:

A3 Pull-Out Maps

Where did your ancestors live?  It may be possible to trace historic maps showing the streets, the towns, and cities where your ancestors once lived.  Do these streets still exist, or has the landscape changed in the past decades?  Please note: copies of maps incur small additional charges.
