Research Prices

Hourly Research from £25/hour (minimum 4 hours research)


Research undertaken at a fixed hourly rate, usually within an agreed budget that can be reviewed as the research progresses.


Gift Vouchers


Commissioning research for friends or family can be difficult if you can’t access information or you are unsure which ancestor they would like researched.  Gift Vouchers allow the recipient to decide the direction of the research and are a great last minute gift idea.


Gift vouchers can be purchased in any denomination of your choice with a minimum order of £100 (4 hours).


All vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.


To order a gift voucher or if you would like further details please contact me to discuss your requirements.


Additional Charges


If you require an officially certified copy of a register entry these can be provided at cost (currently £12 each).


Please note there may be additional charges if certificates need to be ordered for a birth, marriage or death that took place outside of Scotland.  Any such charges will be discussed and agreed with you before purchases are made.

Other charges may include mileage if travel is required to access specialised records; copies of certificates and other documents at cost; bespoke presentation formats and any other costs specific to the project. All these will be fully discussed and agreed with you before proceeding.




A deposit is payable before the commencement of work.




Payment can be made by Sterling cheque, bank transfer or by credit/debit card via PayPal (I shall email you an invoice with link and payment instructions).  There will be no additional charges for using Paypal.
