Services & Fees


  • Family History Research
    Depending upon your research needs, I can help you past a dead end, trace a family line, or find a missing link. While success cannot be guaranteed, you can be assured every effort will be made to reach your research goal.
  • Military Records Research
    Whether your ancestor served in the British (WW1 and earlier), Canadian, New Zealand, or Australian military, I can locate service records and other related material.
  • Document Transcriptions
    If you’re having difficulty reading old documents because of the handwriting, let me decipher those for you.
  • Birth, Death, and Marriage Certificate Searches
    I provide searches for British civil registration certificates (1837-present) and will order certified copies or PDFs if desired.
  • Editing and Proofreading
    I have more than 20 years of experience as an editor and proofreader. If you have a manuscript that needs some expert eyes to check for grammar, style, and content, I provide fast, quality service.


Every genealogy research project is unique. This means that the cost of research varies depending upon the complexity and depth of that research. If you are interested in commissioning me to research your family history or help with a particular problem, I will provide a fee proposal after assessing your specific needs. My initial consultation is free.

I work on an hourly basis, with a minimum of 2 hours charged for any project. Keep in mind when commissioning research that you are paying for my time and expertise, and not the results. Sometimes it is just not possible to find the answers you seek.

Please contact me to discuss the particulars of your research request.
