knowyourancestors' Store Policies


Thank you for visiting!! I'm available to help with your family history research in New York and New England; if you need something not included in my offerings, please feel free to ask and I'll do my best to accommodate you.


Fees are described with each offering. Custom research can be arranged at $25/hour plus expenses (copying, parking, etc) with 2 hours paid up front as a retainer. Travel charges may apply if the repository is more than an hour from my home. Minimum charge for custom research taking less than an hour is $12.


At the conclusion of my research or look-ups you will receive a professional report summarizing my findings and citing the sources used. In addition, any documents retrieved will be shared with you digitally in your choice of JPEG or PDF format.

Additional Policies

I will discuss your research request with you prior to starting any research (and at various points along the way) so there will be no surprises. My goal is to provide thorough research with professional reporting of the results.
