Our Rates

Hourly rate = $65/hour

For planning purposes, 10 hours is a starting point to achieve results for a typical research question. We can complete one phase, then budget to move on to another phase.

We are a small firm and believe that our fees go directly toward our exhaustive research for you and your family. We don’t have high overhead or expensive marketing campaigns that force us to charge higher fees.

The research can be fun but it can also be overwhelming and often incomplete or lacking in proof if you choose to try to do it yourself. You might think you have found your third great-grandfather only to find that there are 4 different Williams' who could be yours! Often it saves you time and money to hire a professional genealogist. It takes a great deal of time if you choose to go it alone.  Allyson and Marilyn are well-qualified genealogists who carefully and efficiently sort through countless sources, records, and files to find and analyze the answers you are searching for.

Whether you want to try to do a large segment of your research on your own or need us to help get you started or help finish a project, we are here to help.

In short, we can save you time, frustration, and failure. We work to overcome what we call in the industry a “brick wall” when you get stumped and can’t figure out how to move forward.  It happens all the time. We love uncovering a family story through our research and find it exciting to share our exploration and progress with you and to introduce you to the meaningful story of your ancestors.

We will provide you with an easy-to-fill-out questionnaire that gets us up to speed with what you already know about your family.
