We are proud of our cadre of researchers with over a hundred years of experience!
Our services include the basic ancestral line, single events, translations, and verifications of existing research. We can also add depth to your ancestors with Filles du Roi, Carignan soldiers, French who fought in or supported the American Revolution and other historical data.
To start the process of requesting research, email the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, address, email, phone number and member number if applicable. Clarity in explaining exactly what you are seeking prevents unnecessary work and expense.
For ancestral lines, please complete a 4 generation chart with sources and any other supporting data, such as census records. Include this information in the email that is sent in to the research department.
Basic initiation fee is $35 for non-members and $20 for members. This covers the first hour of research and is non-refundable. Before sending in any money or credit card information, please wait to get a reply back from the research staff so that an exact amount can be determined for the work to be done.
Single events require a general time frame and any records you may have on parents, descendants etc.
Once received, the research will be assigned for review and you will be contacted with an estimate of time and cost. You may then authorize us to spend no more than a certain amount of time or money on the project. No surprises!
Please be aware that searches generally take 4 to 6 weeks, occasionally longer, unless it is a single request with data provided. Results are generally sent via email and include sources, a pedigree and a descendant chart along with a gedcom to add to your genealogy database. There is an additional $3.00 charge for mailing through the USPS.
