Lexy MacLennan from Glam, Raasay. Taken possibly about 1910With a historic lack of information prior to 1855 plus other challenges to overcome (many people with the same names, large scale movements of families and variations on place names to name but three), Norma takes nothing at face value and cross-checks every last detail before including it all in her database, highlighting any contradictory or dubious information, so that the full picture can be surveyed during research. This approach allows Norma to report based on the entire record and give the version that she concludes is correct. With this approach, conflicting information is dealt with and Norma can substantiate her views based on all of the information available.

From an initial query right through to a final report, 'Skye Roots' service is personal and second-to-none. Although each assignment is agreed in advance as to the scope and fee, typically an initial report costing 50 is the usual starting point. 

Averaging around 4 x A4 pages, an initial report will include one or more charts of the family tree, some general relevant historical / geographical background information as well as the sources upon which the report is based. The report is despatched on receipt of the agreed assignment fee. The report may well also include recommendations for further research to expand the scope and content, together with a quotation for the respective costs / expenses that would be incurred.
