Freckles can be on anyone no matter the background. However, having freckles is genetic and is related to the presence of a dominant gene variant. Use to trace your roots and find out more about your genetic makeup.

What I Do

Ancestors Research helps you find your South African ancestors. I help clients with challenging and problematic South African Family Trees and history as well as difficulties in tracing their family trees and providing genealogical research for those who cannot do it themselves or don’t have the time. Using online and offline resources, my expertise will provide you with the answers you are looking for. I have over 40 years of experience and a passion for helping you reach your family history objectives, no matter how big or small the problem is. Contact me now.

Your Aims

The first step to achievement is working out how I can help you reach your goals and find those missing links. Are you hitting brick walls? You cannot get back any further than a particular person? I will find out from you the information that you already have, evaluate how much time the project will take, and explain what results can be expected.

Working Together

We are partners in this. I know that the best way to help you reach objectives is to work together as a team. We started by reviewing the research you’ve done. Then, we’ll share our findings along the way, so you can ask questions, assess your goals, and see the progress we’ve made.

Let’s get Started

My expertise offers research mainly from the following repositories and documents ordered from the following resources:

Anything – please ask as I am sure I can do it.

Before I engage in private research with you I will need to know the following answers before I begin.

  • Have you used a private researcher before? If so, please provide evidence of findings and please provide the researcher’s name as I don’t want to repeat unnecessary research.
  • Why do you want this research done? Is it purely for interest? Adoption? medical reasons, family rumour, visa or immigration reasons, or long-lost relatives?
  • Costs: These differ considerably from researcher to researcher and make sure that you use the most experienced person who physically goes to the archives at least once a week and not an armchair researcher. When paying a researcher, it is important to remember that you are not paying for the information as very few family records are online, you are paying for their time, expertise, petrol, photocopying, parking, emails, etc.

Each client has different needs, so each research job is tailored specifically for that client. Remember that you will be required to pay generally 50% upfront and the rest on completion It is important to remember that I will not always be able to find what you are looking for – if there are no records for your ancestors then there are none.

Don’t expect me to provide you with a family tree going back to Adam and Eve, most families are lucky enough to have recorded documentation going back 100 years – more than that you are very fortunate. A pedigree, descendant, and ascendant charts are also available on request at an additional cost which are provided in PDF format for printing. High-quality digital photographs are provided with results where possible as well as a written report.

  • This is not a free service as you will pay for my professional time and expertise.
  • I cannot tell you if you are adopted
  • I cannot tell you what time you were born
  • I am not an oracle or a fortune teller
