Angela Aldam

I am an experienced full-time genealogist located on the Herts/Essex border within easy reach of London's archives, with their wealth of local and national record collections. These, together with the indexes, catalogues and original material available online, mean that I can research your ancestors' history no matter where in the country they lived. If supplementary research is needed in a distant regional archive, I can commission other carefully selected professionals on your behalf.

I accept a wide range of commissions, but my particular speciality is in researching family histories spanning several generations, and preparing presentation-quality reports and family tree charts.

Family History Reports

My flagship product is the Family Folios Heirloom Report, a fully-authored and illustrated family biography, accompanied by clear family tree charts. A large-format chart showing all of your family on one tree can also be produced. Choose from a range of printing/binding options, and order multiple copies to share with your family if you wish. If all you are looking for is a simpler but smartly presented report, I can cater for this as well.

Hourly rates / fixed-price projects

Research can be on an hourly basis plus expenses, or I can calculate a fixed total for your project. A number of typical package prices can be found on my website to give you an idea of the cost of popular combinations of features. However, every commission is tailored to the client's wishes and budget - call me for a free consultation, to discuss the options and get a personalised quote.

I am always happy to meet up with my clients in person, to discuss what you need and go over what you already know, or afterwards to present my report in person and talk you through the discoveries I have made.

My family history has been brought to life. People/places I had no knowledge of and yet felt a sense of connection with have surfaced. Angela takes great pride in her work, she listened to what I wanted and exceeded all expectation in the final project. Angela has a beautiful writing style and is able to deal with and report on old family secrets in a kind and sensitive manner. Angela offers a bespoke service as opposed to a set menu of options only, which proved invaluable for my particular circumstances. In fact this is one of the best things that I have ever purchased and is up there in my top 3 along with my first car and my wedding dress!

The Family Tree arrived today, my dad was absolutely amazed ... I will never be able to thank you enough, for all your hard work and the final product is outstanding, the quality is brilliant. Its more than just a family tree, its my dads family history which he knew so little about but this has meant so much more than words can describe. You did an amazing job, thank you so very much.

I have today received the book, CD and family tree in relation to the work you have done on tracing my wife’s paternal ancestry. I must say that the quality of the presentation and the way in which you have included so many related facts that I never imagined would be available has certainly exceeded my expectations - and all so professionally tied together. ...This will make a great present for my wife who I’m sure will be both delighted and fascinated by the work, as will her family.
