My standard hourly rate reflects specialized knowledge of a particularly large and uniquely complex category of genealogical and historical research.

Every project is unique. I charge a standard hourly rate for research, lectures, and other work. I will discount my rate depending on the total contract hours of a given research session. Under some circumstances, I may quote you a flat rate for your project.

In addition to hourly rates, a project may incur associated fees such as travel expenses, copy or microfilm reproduction charges, postage, etc. I am happy to explain all charges and establish a project budget. You should expect to pay a retainer.


A professional genealogist cannot make a guarantee about finding the information you seek, and cannot predict the time it will take to prove relationships or discover details you need.  It is important to remember that you will be paying me for my time and expertise.
