Build or Strengthen a Family Tree



Whether you are just beginning to research your family history with a few names or you have researched some of your family, I can assist you with your needs. A complimentary assessment of your needs can be made before you pay the retainer fee of 20% which will be determined by the maximum amount you want to spend.

After the assessment of the research needed to build and/or complete your tree, a detailed outline will be issued of the research plan. The research will be on an hourly basis, plus expenses. A report detailing the places and documents accessed and the time period and date in which the research took place will be provided.

About mid-way, a report will be issued of the progress on your project which will result in a second payment of one-half of the remaining balance will be due. When the project is complete, a report along with supporting documents will be issued and the final invoice of the remaining balance will be due.

Ordering instructions from tennessee-gal

Ordering your research from me will give you more time to do the things you need to do—work, play, pursue hobbies, etc. It’s costly these days to travel when you think about the price of gas, hotels, restaurants, and taking time from work. So when you think of my research fees in those terms, it’s a bargain!
