Free assessment
Complete the Contact form with as much information as you know about the project you are interested in pursuing and I will advise you of what the estimated costs would be.


Initial Consultation Р$100 CDN

Includes 3 hours of research time, during which I will:

  • review all the family information that you supply
  • explore historical records to find evidence that supports this information and expands upon it
  • document the findings to share with you in a detailed report.

Note: Positive results cannot be guaranteed, however, I will do my best to uncover any information that can be reasonably found within the time allotted for a research request.


Hourly rate – $40 CDN

The initial three hours of research is $100.00 CDN and all subsequent hours of research are billed at an hourly rate of $40.00 CDN.

Notes on rates:

The number of hours required to complete a research project may vary depending on what the client needs are, how much information they already know about their family and how easily the records can be accessed.

If you are interested in tracing a few generations on your father’s family line, that will take considerably less time than researching a complete family tree as far back as it can go.

I have access to a number of paid research subscriptions which I use as part of my regular research service. On occasion, it happens that documents must be ordered from distant archives or repositories or fees must be paid to access specialty online collections. These additional costs and the reason for their need will be communicated to the customer for approval prior to proceeding with that avenue of research.


Document Transcription or Translation – $20 CDN per page

I am adept at deciphering many styles of handwriting and I am fluent in French so can transcribe any historical documents in French or English you are not able to decipher on your own.


Methods of Payment

Payment are accepted via e-mail transfer, credit card through PayPal, or by cheque (bank drafts or money orders also accepted).

Details on how to pay will be communicated during the consultation process.
