About Root to Tip

Root to Tip began in 2008 as a team of two researchers, offering by the hour research for a wide range of clients with different research needs.

For some customers we researched their trees from scratch, for others it was taking what information they already had, a tree that had been started but stalled, and carried it on for them. Some customers were adoptees wanting to find biological relatives, others were stuck on a section of their tree and needed help to unravel the twisted web our ancestors often leave for us. 

Since 2017 Root to Tip is now run by Alex Darby, one of the founding members. 

Providing a professional friendly service, we offer a free no obligation quote and research to your budget to help you to find out more about your family history.
