“Her approach is friendly and the communications were great”

“Anne did a wonderful job in researching my partners family history, albeit a challenging one ! Her approach is friendly and the communications were great. The final book (and may I say a quality item in itself ) made a great Xmas present . I would without hesitation recommend Leaves to anyone who wants a great value, friendly and comprehensive service. Thank you.” – C.P. Lincolnshire
