My name is Anne Batty

I am a married mother of two children and a member of the Society of Genealogists.

Family is something that I hold dear to myself and have found the research of my own family roots fascinating and fulfilling.

The sad loss of my Grandfather some years ago inspired me to trace my own ancestry to the early 1600’s and discover who I am. This in turn, led me to start a business researching and illustrating other peoples ancestry.

Although based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire our services are available throughout the UK.

Family discovery was founded by myself and with the support of my husband Adrian, who is a computer engineer. We aim to deliver professional genealogical research and photo restoration services.

Family Discovery

Family Discovery offers professional genealogical services. Our services include the full research and illustration of a family line. Family roots are carefully traced back in time using the U.K census records, birth, death and marriage certificates. Family Discovery has access to millions of census, military, birth, death and marriage records. We can also carry out research locally to Scarborough by searching the local archive centres, libraries and cemeteries.

Trace a Family

It’s usually possible to trace a family line back to the late 1700’s, or even further!! We create beautiful scrolls which illustrate your family tree. The scroll is printed on super quality Epson 195gsm lustre photo paper. The scroll can have your family photographs and your family coat of arms included.

Family History Books

Also we write family history books, which are personally written by myself. The book includes personal information about your ancestor’s life, their occupations, when and where they were born and when and where they died. The book also incorporates maps, census extracts, birth, death & marriage certificate, relevant to your ancestors life. Your family photographs can also be included.
