As Helena has found when carrying out research, it’s photographs that really bring the past to life. With a Nikon dSLR and accompanying tripod, she can take pictures for you of gravestones, churchyards, churches, houses, areas where your family lived, plaques, paintings and documents (subject to permissions).

This service will include travel expenses to each location, and a set fee for the photographs themselves. High resolution jpeg files will be saved on a DVD and sent to you in a secure package. You may also receive a small selection of photos by email.
