Charges for Cornish Ancestry Services

Cornish Family History Research

This is based on an hourly rate of £20.00 per hour, with a minimum charge of £20.00. Obviously, the expense of the project will depend on how deep you wish to dig. Our suggestion to clients is that they give us a time or expense limit (of their choice) over which we do not exceed until the progress is reviewed. The client can then decide if they wish to proceed with more research. Any General Record Office Certificate or similar documents which have been obtained from Record Offices will be forwarded to you and charged at cost price. Travel costs will be extra – but we will keep clients advised of the likely sum. Travel costs may be incurred in visiting the parish of particular interest to you. All research work is verified by inspection of the actual records – so a visit to the Cornwall Record Office at Truro is almost certainly an extra expense in the region of £15.00. Postage and Packing costs will be kept to a minimum but will be in the region of £10.00 -£20.00.
