When doing our family history, we all need help from a great aunt at some
time. If yours have all passed on, you could try Great Aunty Alice, a new website, which
is a directory of independent genealogical researchers based across the UK and
around the world. No matter what stage you are at with your family tree, whether you need
help with a small specific problem or would like someone to carry out extensive
research, Great Aunty Alice has an array of researchers for you to choose from.
The site contains listings of
genealogists, some are professionals while others are amateurs who are willing
to help. All genealogy research questions are handled privately in email, not
on the web site. Of course, professionals would need to be paid for their time
and everyone should be reimbursed for any expenses they may incur, such as
travel expenses, photocopying fees, postage, and more.
The web site's owner
does not receive commissions for clients the researchers receive, and each
listing is written by the individual researcher explaining their services.
Great Aunty Alice simply serves as a directory to help put people in touch.
