What information do you need to get started?
Typically, as much information as you can provide. Whatever names dates you may have including those you are not sure of. We will review your information during the preliminary interview.
Do I need to do a DNA test?
No, you don't. DNA is a tool which can help point you in the right direction if you are looking for a birth parent, or have questions regarding your lineage.
How long does research take?
The length of time to complete research is unique to each project. It all depends on the amount of information that is already known and what is available on record.
Do you transcribe documents?
Yes we do. Some documents are difficult to read, due to poor penmanship, bad scans or obscure phrasing. I can help transcribe both English and French records.
Can you help me with the tree I have already started?
Certainly! I can verify and validate the information you have already found, as well as adding some new details. We can also produce a report or family chart for your family based on your findings.
How do you accept payment?
We accept payments by PayPal as it is the most secure.
The initial fee of $150 is due once you have decided to retain our services.
For projects costing less than $400, the remainder of the payment will become due at the completion of the project.
For projects over $400, payment is requested at each milestone mutually agreed upon with the client.
