Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!  Amazing - thank you very, very much.  The most exciting part of the tree for me was discovering my long lost cousin.  I’m dying to speak to them and meet up perhaps.  I just can’t believe it - you are fantastic, did you know that?

You have changed my life.

- Mrs. Pepworth, Bridlington, England

You are again a genius!  It’s amazing that you’ve found the record of my grandmother ALMOST boarding the Titanic!

That’s brilliant!

- Ms. Boyle, Wakefield, England.

I am so delighted with the Storybook!!!  It looks amazing and you have done such a fantastic job!  Thank you so much for all your hard work!  I am really looking forward to reading it as I know my parents are too.

- Ms. Maria Jones, International Opera Singer.

We are enjoying our journey into the history of our extended Irish-English families.  Your professional knowledge and determination have yielded results which are simply invaluable.  To be able to look back over some 200 years is just amazing.  We are sincerely appreciative of your wonderful service.

- L & C Redmond, Shankill, Co. Dublin, Ireland

You're wonderful; my hero.

Here in Australia we simply don't have people of your calibre.  The Scottish records seem to have been the biggest hurdles, and no other genealogists have been able to solve this mystery - I’ve just been offered refunds all the time.  Thank you again and when we come over to England next year my partner and I would love to meet and thank you in person.

Michael did a fantastic job in his research of our family in England, Wales and Ireland! The research was thorough, professional and we received reports on his research progress very quickly. I was extremely impressed with the way his research brought our ancestors to life. Not only was he able to find the "barebones" of genealogical information such as birth dates, marriages, parents and children, but he found interesting details that added "flesh" to the skeleton and helped us understand these ancestors lives and even (I think) their character. I would highly recommend Michael and Heir Line for any genealogy research in the UK!

- Dr. Steven W. Hammond, M.D., Montana, USA.

I've been sat thinking about what an amazing job you have done on working out who's who from the snippets that were available to you in the letters [from my grandmother].  It is an amazing piece of detective work.

- Mr. Paul Beetham, Chairman of Kingfisher Windows, West Yorkshire.

Michael Rochford of Heir Line is a very able genealogist, who I'm sure will be able to establish [a client’s family history].  Michael R is University trained and established his own company, as above.  He and his partner Caroline have earned plaudits for efficient and speedy family history researches from as far afield as Canada, America and Australia.

- Mr. Colin Brook, Wales, godson of T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).

I can’t believe how much

my dad loves your report.  He’s now planning to go to the places his ancestors were buried to find their gravestones!!  Cheerful!

- Ms. Helen Talbot, Oulton, West Yorkshire.

Thank you for what is a great piece of work in putting our family tree together. Very impressed by the depth and detail you have gone to and produced. It is a remarkable and thoroughly professional piece of work.

- Mr. and Mrs. Jowett, North Yorkshire, England
