EMG Private Investigations and Historical Research offers a national and international service

Family History / Genealogy

Family History/Genealogy Services

EMG Investigations and Historical Research has a great deal of experience in locating family members who been ‘lost’ for various reasons. We are particularly experienced in Adoption Tracing and have conducted research for both the adoptee and biological family. We conduct this research with sensitivity and have been successful in reuniting numerous families.

We also offer a Family History service where we would be able to assist you with anything from a one-off archival search through to a complete bespoke package. We use a multitude of sources such as birth, marriage and death records, military records, poor law records, probate/will records, court records, education records, occupation records, poll books, livery records, vestry records, taxation records, passenger lists and historical newspaper records to name a few. Using various sources increases of the robustness of our research that we take great pride in doing meticulously.

Family tree information, though, is just part of what we offer as with our bespoke package, we would also look at the context of the era for each or specific family members. Information, which we may include, is where they lived and what the area would have been like at the time they lived there. Also, their occupation, what their average day may have consisted of, whether they had been in trouble with the courts and if they had a high enough profile to be mentioned in the newspapers of the day. Further research might look at whether they had a military or naval background, what their rank was and possibly what assignments they had been on.

We are based in Central London and are very close to many of the archives that are still only available via a physical visit. Our Head Researcher is a full member of the Society of Genealogists.
