Research Gift Certificate

For the person who has everything but wants to know where he/she came from!

You will receive a gift certificate that the recipient can redeem for the number of research hours selected. Research that leads to records outside of NSW will be negotiated before commencement.

If the recipient has already done some research then that must be examined first to validate the results, and to avoid redoing it. Examination of previous research materials will be included in the total hours. Let a professional have a go at it!

Minimum 10 hours research, including analysis of existing materials.

As a guide to what may be accomplished within a specific number of hours:

10 hours is usually enough to analyse a large amount of existing research materials and suggest next steps; or start a new family tree with a couple of generations in a couple of branches within NSW (certificates may need to be purchased).

10 hours may be enough to break down a brick wall in existing research (certificates may need to be purchased).

10 hours can usually make a start on a new family tree (certificates will almost certainly need to be purchased).

20 hours can build a small family tree. Certificates will almost certainly need to be purchased. It can take up to 100 hours to build a substantial family tree.

40 hours can build a small family tree and put some detail other than basic birth, death and marriage dates on some of the ancestors involved. A CD or website containing the results can also be created.

Postage and photocopies are extra and can’t be determined until research is completed but may be deducted from the total if requested in advance.

The number of hours purchased may not be enough to solve the problem or build a family tree. Please advise what you want to happen when the money runs out.
