Research Rates

Depending on the desired results, I offer an hourly rate or a flat rate.  Flat rates vary based on the project and are negotiated in advance.  Hourly rates are $40 per hour. A retainer fee of $80 must be paid upfront.  This retainer provides for project analysis and action plan development.  It includes two hours of time before you will be charged the hourly fee plus expenses.  Initial consultation is complimentary.  I keep detailed logs of the time spent on your project. Final bills will include costs for copies, travel (if applicable) and third-party research records (approved in advance).  Upon completion of your project, you will receive a written report including source documentation.

Family History Books

Many clients are asking me for family history books.  While you may be thinking of boring list-type genealogy books that were common in genealogy in the past, my books are filled with images and engaging.  These are a great gift idea.  Please click here for more examples.
