fees and pricing

Fees: Research time is charged at an hourly rate, plus document copying fees and postage costs.

While no family fits neatly into a "package", Jo will quote a price for your personal research project, detail which records will be searched and why, and give an estimate of a time scale for completion. Large projects can be split into smaller projects to be carried out over a period of weeks or months, which makes budgeting more manageable for the client.

Contact Jo with details of your Scottish genealogy project to find out how she can help and get a quote.
