This service is designed for do-it-yourself genealogists who want help overcoming a particular impasse in their research. There should be limited objectives. One or two items of information, a limited time period, and a specific locality are important parameters.
Feel free to e-mail with a proposed problem to be solved. Don’t include all the details at this point. In a paragraph or two, describe what you want to know.
A minimum of $100 is necessary to open a problem-solving or record-searching account. The actual charge will depend on the time spent, and you can limit the amount to spend on a particular objective. All research must be pre-paid.
Thus a complete request might be “Spend up to $50 trying to trace the marriage of _____. Here’s what I know and what I’ve already done…” Remember, you must tell me what records you have already checked to avoid duplication of effort.
