My standard fees are £25 per hour pro rata, plus expenses.
There is a minimum charge of £25 for a single look-up or record retrieval.
For more open-ended projects, such as researching the life of an individual ancestor, tracing a lineage or building a family tree, fees are tailored to suit each assignment. A budget limit for the first piece of research is agreed, and a small deposit is normally requested in advance.
Fees cover the cost of
- time spent researching at archives and online
- report writing
- preparing family trees
- communicating with clients
All time spent on research has to be charged, even when nothing is found.
Document copying, photography permits and postage are all extras, charged at cost.
How to pay
Payment can be made by :
- PayPal (+ 5% surcharge to cover administration costs).
