My fee is $35.00 CAD an hour. You are free to choose
which questions you want answered, or you can choose
to have all of them researched. I would ask for 60% of
the total amount of the estimate as a retainer, before
I start the research, with the remaining 40% due
before the final report is sent to you at the end of
I will refund any unused amounts if I do not use up
all of the time allocated.
A basic report of the findings is included as part of
the research package, and is comprised of the standard
information taken from any applicable BMDs
(Births, Marriages, and Deaths), as well as land,
census, transportation, military, immigration,
religious, and other corresponding records necessary
to satisfy the query. This report will also show the
relationship between the records and the query, and
will include all citations of the sources found.
Moreover, a more detailed report—which adds
supplementary and corollary information to the
research, helping put the ancestor into a greater
context of genealogy, history, and heritage of the
family history—is available at a cost of $10.00 CAD
per page. Using the 5Ws & How, this narrative
report is more comprehensive, its length depending on
the findings and complexity of the research.

enhance your family history or personal research,
