My fee schedule is as follows:

  • My current research rate is $35.00 per hour
  • I do not charge for travel time unless it is over 50 miles
  • I will charge back costs for copies, government certificates (i.e. birth, death, marriage), train tickets or parking fees at cost (I never add markup).
  • I will always give you a free quote for research services and require your approval before I would undertake any research.
  • I will always provide a very clear research findings report and provide citations
  • If the project is on the larger size, I prefer to bill in smaller increments (10 hour blocks) so that you are always aware of your budget and the project's progress.
