This gift box not only allows the recipient to discover the history behind their surname, but it also provides them with hints and tips to help them trace their own family history.

The gift box also provides you with information on how to research your family history. Researching your family tree can take years and years, and the included leaflets will give you handy tips on how to make a start. Once you've found out the names of your ancestors, you can add them to the included, blank family history wall chart.Worried that you won't be able to find information about an unusual surname?
