Genealogical Research and Document Searches.
I will undertake genealogical and local history research commissions, or document transcriptions. I can perform specific searches in my wide collection of personal indexes and transcriptions for families or individuals.
Charges for searches in my indexes are listed below. For ad hoc research I charge an hourly rate of £17 per hour for commissions of up to three hours work, and £15 per hour for every hour beyond three.
I do not charge for travel, or the time travelling. Copying costs are extra.
I accept payments by Pay Pal (used by most people overseas), cheque, bank draft/transfer.
