Fees charged for family history research and location photography

My standard fee is £30 per hour, plus expenses. There are no hidden charges. I want you to be in control of all expenditure relating to the research you want me to conduct on your behalf.


We will agree a programme of work and I will report back to you with progress at the end of the agreed period. Please also note that I am obliged to charge for time spent on research even if, in the end, few results are generated, unfortunately genealogy is not the exact science some people think it is!


For full details see my Terms & Conditions.
