Our rates for professional genealogy research range from $85 to $150 (USD) per hour. We are proud to offer a finished product that brings life to the histories of our Families. We do this with integrity, detail and precision, after all, these or the generations that made you...you.
Value, Expectations & Services
To provide maximum value to our clients, our rates depend on the type of work you need done. A simple record lockup will be less expensive than deep, in depth analysis with travel and interdisciplinary consultations.
Our research projects are usually completed between six and ten weeks after payment is made. However, it is not unusual for cases to take a little longer. Commissioned Writing Projects can take as long as one year. We make every effort to complete your research as quickly as possible but sometimes research may take longer when records from different archives need to be ordered or deeper research is required. Remember, like you, your ancestors lived, full, and complete lives. Sometimes it takes time to bring that person back to life.
We can also perform nearly any genealogy related service and look forward to working with you and meet your needs. But your needs are really the voices of your ancestors. When they are heard you understand yourself and your family traditions more completely. Our research is done with precision and detail. Once documents are discovered they will be fully sourced with only the most reputable records, and a focus on primary, original documents of unquestioned integrity.
Professional Genealogist Fees
Your Family Story is Our Specialty
Pedigree Charts are fantastic resources, but they tell little about what your ancestors were really like. What were their day-to-day lives like? What was the community, the area, the situation that they lived in? What colorful facts or historical events did they live through? What did they look like? Answers to these questions, and more, can often be found through in-depth research.
While we can do basic genealogy research leading to a basic Pedigree Chart, we can also do more. Mixing basic Genealogy Pedigree Charts with in-depth background research we can write the story of your family or individual ancestor. In short, our projects are customizable.
