The significance of family trees

Family trees offer a captivating way to explore our past, our ancestors’ lives, help us to gain insights into our heritage and connect us to those who came before. “Why would you bother?” you may ask, and really, it is that as humans we have the capacity to be innately curious about our origins and the stories that have shaped our lives.

At its core (or its roots) these delicate branches are a way of presenting your lineage and showcasing interconnected relationships between your ancestors and their descendants. This visual representation of your family can paint a vivid picture of the past and trace families through generations, detail the history of your names and the places they may have travelled for you to be where you find yourself and your immediate family in present day. Knowing all of this can help to foster a sense of identity and a greater understanding about some of the tragedies and triumphs your ancestors may have faced for you to be able to be here.

Born & Bred Historical Research are passionate about family history and we specialise in this avenue of research. We use our expertise and skills to thoroughly research and construct a tree, which can all be verified by sources. It’s not just a matter of “Googling” (if only it were that easy!).

The final result will be a meticulously set out tree which captures the essence of your family’s legacy and can be passed down to future generations.

It is so much more than just a bunch of lines linking people together; it is a gateway to the past that connects you to generations.

Our trees are 5-6 generations of your direct ancestors, which is more than 60 individuals all set out on your choice of one of our custom-designed prints.

Getting your family tree completed can be an enriching and rewarding experience. Contact us to learn more about getting started.
