If you continue on to complete a full family history book, it will typically will include several hundred people, and can usually get at least into the mid 1700’s (or even the 1500’s, if records exist for your town.) Some projects have found as many as 1,000 ancestors!
Our flat rate includes costs involved to conduct the research. Our rate of $399 hasn’t changed in several years ! and our hourly rate is well below industrial standards, especially for our level of experience. There may sometimes be multiple researchers who work on a various parts of a project. Many extra, unbilled hours are thrown in for book projects. Unless otherwise specified, our research projects have always been “open-ended”, with most clients working towards having a book’s worth of info compiled. We keep working until all sources that exist for your town have been exhausted, and ultimately you get a Family History Book–if you follow through. Such a project is comprehensive, including “everyone” by your surname that can be found for your tree. There are no binding legal contracts, but this will usually take at least a year, or more often two years, depending on how large your family is, and how good record sources are for your ancestral town. It is possible to put the project on hold should an emergency arise (30 days notice preferred). Full projects result in spiral-bound family books–perfect for gifts, reunions, display, and to pass on to your descendants!
Putting the results in book format implies that “everything” that can be done was done, and the research is “complete”. Otherwise order a “modified research project and choose the number of months-with charts and family group sheets, without book. The research will be approached differently.
If you want “the works” ! “Cousins of cousins” ! This is the place !
You will be given copies all documents to support the research.
We accept personal check, money order, PayPal, credit cards.
All tree projects: begin with a “one time only” $60 application fee to review your starting information, check resources available to do the work and plan strategy. With so many inquiries via the Internet, we simply do not have time for free consultations.
Also, we need a written trail of everything that was discussed, so all communications are by email. No phone calls please. Credit card billing is done through the secure site of PayPal.com.
Please use the form below to get started . Then you will be asked to supply copies of documents you have that pertain and further details. The $60.00 application fee MUST be received before we spend time reviewing your starting materials. (Remember book projects drop to just $399 after the first month).
