Professional Genealogist Fees

The amount of time spent on genealogy research is dependent on the availability of genealogy records. For instance, the US Census does not exist before 1790, then from 1790 to 1840 it lists only the head of the household, and then from 1850 to 1940 all family members are listed. The availability of birth, marriage and death records vary from region to region. Once we understand the region you are researching and how far back you want to go we can provide you with a genealogy fee proposal.

Family Tree Cost

The cost of the genealogy research of your family will be based on the depth of the research. From this research, we can then create a family tree (see some family tree examples).
