If you would like our assistance to answer a question or conduct research in the realm of genealogy/history, we will do our best to suit your particular project needs. If it is not a service we provide, we will point you in the right direction to help discover and preserve the history in your life. In your email, specify your question and please provide additional background on what you already know and what steps you have taken (if any) to previously research this question.

A preliminary plan will review your contact information, the questions we will try to answer for you, an initial search of pertinent information readily  accessible, potential sources and repositories we will utilize and the suggested steps of research. We do ask for a $50 retainer before the preliminary research plan is presented. Once we present this information to you, we will have you sign an agreement allowing us to conduct the stated research plan and complete your requested project for the number of hours you have authorized. Upon completion of the research and report, we will present you with a copy of your report, detailing our findings and suggestions for future research, if it would be beneficial. You will be provided with detailed information in a timely manner. A backlog could increase wait time, but expect the search and report to take two weeks. We will use our online resources first to minimize travel expenses while verifying original sources whenever possible.
